Webinar: Dynamic ocean management approaches to support sustainable ocean activities

Wednesday, November 13, 2019. 3:00PM. Webinar: Dynamic ocean management approaches to support sustainable ocean activities. Elliot Hazen and Heather Welch, National Marine Fisheries Service. Sponsored by NMFS and NOAA Central Library. More information here.
Elliot Hazen and Heather Welch will discuss the latest research on implementing dynamic applications to address spatio-temporal management problems. Dynamic ocean management (DOM) is emerging as one potential solution to the challenge of spatially managing species and human activities that are dynamic in space and time. DOM strategies use real-time data on environmental conditions to inform management boundaries that can in turn rapidly adjust in response to the shifting nature of the ocean, its biodiversity, and the stakeholders that use it. This webinar introduces the field of DOM, provides the latest on the fisheries sustainability tool EcoCast, and discusses the process of building, validating, operationalizing, maintaining, and forecasting a dynamic ocean management tool. Join this webinar to learn about some of the challenges, solutions, and under-the-hood details of applied dynamic ocean management.
