Coastal Ecosystems in Changing Times

April 25 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Dr. Linda Deegan, Senior Scientist
Woods Hole Research Center

Coastal ecosystems are cherished because they are beautiful, provide food and protect cities from coastal storms. In the past threats were direct – dredging and filling - and easier to fix. Today these ecosystems are suffering from diffuse threats, with impacts that are harder to see and more challenging to remedy. Eutrophication has resulted in salt marshes being one of the most nutrient enriched ecosystems in the world. Previously unsuspected changes to saltmarshes caused by too many nutrients will be discussed, as will options for restoration that take into account the legacy of coastal eutrophication.

This annual event honors the life and accomplishments of the MSC's founding director, Dr. Nathan "Pete" Riser.
