This webinar was the second in a series that explores science and research topics relevant to the “Managing Water Resources Along the Coast” community of practice.
Called a story map, the interactive tool provides a background on stormwater and wastewater services for decision makers, scientists, and others working with or providing climate information and data for water utilities.
Participants identified rising ocean temperatures, ocean acidification, deoxygenation, harmful algal blooms, extreme events, and the ability to predict and project these changes at scales meaningful to sanctuaries as the most pressing needs.
Climate change threatens valuable marine ecosystem resources managed by sanctuaries. These learning exchanges allow sanctuaries and partner offices to learn from each other about how to incorporate information into management strategies to reduce climate risks.
These discussions are an early step in achieving the goal of increased connectivity between NOAA Research capabilities and sanctuary climate information needs under CPO's Marine Ecosystems Risk Team (MERT) initiative.
