Lecture: Big Science in Our Small Ocean

Sunday, January 13, 2019

Jan Newton has for many years been observing Puget Sound and coastal Washington. She is a passionate advocate for preserving and restoring this rich ecosystem, through both State and Federal programs. Hands-on, she has harnessed a raft of new technologies to make crucial observations, sustained over many years. These are needed to understand how our ocean is changing, and how its health can be restored. She is a biological oceanographer with the Applied Physics Laboratory of University of Washington, currently studying ocean acidification in this region, and its connections to global climate change. Jan serves as co-director of the recently established Washington Ocean Acidification Center, which operates from the College of the Environment, and is also Executive Director of the Northwest branch of the Integrated Ocean Observing System, a ‘mega-project’ that uses new technologies to observe the changing ocean and its human impacts.
