The Critical Need for Sustained Ocean Observations: CalCOFI and Beyond
Francisco Werner, Director, Southwest Fisheries Science Center
Long term, sustained ocean observations provide scientists with much needed insight into natural and human induced changes in the world ocean. Join NOAA’s Southwest Fisheries Science Center Director Francisco Werner as he provides a broad perspective on ocean observing and its scientific value and application, as well as a close up look at the important monitoring effort in our own coastal ocean, the California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations.
