2019 Hudson River Symposium: Ecosystem Response to Climate Change and Sea-Level Rise in the Hudson Estuary
Wednesday, 08 May 2019, 9:00
Wednesday May 8th, 2019. 9:00AM. 2019 Hudson River Symposium: Ecosystem Response to Climate Change and Sea-Level Rise in the Hudson Estuary. Sponsored by the Hudson River Environmental Society. More information here.
The forum will present the state of the science to understand vulnerabilities and opportunities to climate change and sea-level rise of the habitats of the Hudson Estuary. Climate change is altering the natural communities in the estuary and watershed. Changing sediment dynamics in the river have altered aquatic habitats and could lead to shifts in fish and wildlife communities. Sea levels rise may alter tidal wetlands. Are there effects in the ocean, including ocean warming and acidification that affect the water and biota of the Hudson River? Decisions to protect communities will affect Hudson River habitats. The symposium will present current research and management options.
Location Vassar College, College Center - Villard Room, 124 Raymond Avenue, Poughkeepsie, NY 12604.
