Evening @ Skidaway programs resume in virtual format

The University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography will resume its Evening @ Skidaway speaker series on Tuesday, December 8, in a virtual format due to COVID-19 restrictions. The program is titled “More than wind and waves: Hurricanes’ impact on the ocean chemistry.”

Scott Noakes

The December 8 program will feature UGA scientist Scott Noakes who is studying the effects of hurricanes and tropical storms on ocean chemistry and marine life at Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary, just off the Georgia coast. Noakes has discovered that storms can lower the pH of the water, making it more acidic and potentially harmful to marine life in the sanctuary.

The Evening @ Skidaway program will be presented via Zoom and will begin at 7 p.m. To access the program, RSVP to mike.sullivan@skio.uga.edu. You will be sent a link to access the presentation.
