Lou Codispoti, Formerly of ODU, to Speak on Arctic Research

Lou Codispoti, a former Old Dominion University faculty member now with the University of Maryland, will speak about a new way of estimating oceanic biological production at a seminar Monday, Nov. 21, sponsored by ODU's Center for Coastal Physical Oceanography (CCPO).


The presentation by Codispoti, "Problems with Oceanic Primary Production Estimates and What To Do About It: Lessons from the Arctic," will begin at 3:30 p.m. in Room 3200 of the Innovation Research Park Building 1. The seminar is free and open to the public, as is a reception with refreshments that begins at 3 p.m.


Codispoti's recent work has involved estimating net community production in the Arctic Ocean and its adjacent seas based on seasonal changes in nutrient concentrations. He was formerly associated with CCPO as a researcher, and now works at the UM Center for Environmental Science Horn Point Laboratory.
