CCPO Seminar on Impacts of Arctic Sea Ice Reductions

Jacqueline Grebmeier, a biological oceanographer with the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Sciences (UMCES), will present her research on the impacts of Arctic sea ice reduction at a seminar Monday, Nov. 29, sponsored by Old Dominion University's Center for Coastal Physical Oceanography.

The talk, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 3:30 p.m. in Room 3200 of the Innovation Research Park Building 1 in University Village. A reception with refreshments begins at 3.

The seminar topic is "Impacts of Changing Sea Ice Conditions on Marine Biological Communities in the Pacific Arctic."

Grebmeier has been conducting research in the Arctic for several years, most recently through the Shelf-Basin Interactions program that was a contribution of the United States to the International Polar Year. Her recent research is focused on the understanding the consequences of the reduction in summer sea ice that is now ongoing for Arctic marine ecosystems.

The speaker, who is a research professor at the UMCES Chesapeake Biological Laboratory, also serves on several national and international advisory groups that focus on polar research.
