Dr. Hannah Baranes, Coastal Hazards / Sea Level Rise Scientist, Gulf of Maine Research Institute
The Gulf of Maine, the Atlantic Ocean basin extending from the north shore of Cape Cod to Nova Scotia, has the largest tides and one of the most biologically productive marine ecosystems in the world. It is also warming faster than 96% of the world’s oceans and experiencing rates of sea level rise higher than the global average. What makes the Gulf of Maine so unique, and how is it responding to a changing climate? Join Dr. Baranes on September 13th to learn about tides, sea level rise, what caused the record-breaking flooding in 2018, and more.
