May 19 webinar on Options for adaptation, risk management, and resilience building in a changing climate: Q&A about the IPCC Special Report that we are co-hosting the NOAA National MPA Center.

Dear EBM Tools Network members,

We are going to switch to using GoToWebinar for our May 19 webinar on Options for adaptation, risk management, and resilience building in a changing climate: Q&A about the IPCC Special Report that we are co-hosting the NOAA National MPA Center. (We will also be using GoToWebinar for some other – but not all – upcoming webinars.) Consequently, there is a new registration link (https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5321831298723977739) for the May 19 webinar. If you had registered for the May 19 webinar before last week, you should have automatically received a new link to use to join the webinar. Please let me know if you didn’t. If you are going to register now, please use this new link to register:https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5321831298723977739.

 

A description of this event and the full list of upcoming EBM Tools Network live events are below.

 

Best wishes to you,

UPDATED WEBINAR LINK!

Webinar: Options for adaptation, risk management, and resilience building in a changing climate: Q&A about the IPCC Special Report

Presented by: Ko Barrett, IPCC Vice-Chair, and Shallin Busch, Anne Hollowed, and William Sweet of NOAA

Date/Time: Tuesday, May 19, 1 pm US EDT/10 am US PDT/5 pm UTC

Description: Global warming has already reached 1°C above the pre-industrial level, due to past and current greenhouse gas emissions. There is strong evidence that this is resulting in profound consequences for ecosystems and people. The ocean is warmer, more acidic and less productive. Melting glaciers and ice sheets are causing sea level rise, and coastal extreme events are becoming more severe. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC) in September 2019. The SROCC outlines climate-related risks and challenges that people around the world are exposed to today and that future generations will face. It also presents options to adapt to changes that can no longer be avoided, manage related risks, and build resilience for a sustainable future. This webinar will share the findings of the SROCC and allow ample time for Q&A about the IPCC special report with webinar participants. Access the SROCC athttps://www.ipcc.ch/srocc.

NEW WEBINAR!

Webinar: NOAA’s National Marine Protected Areas Center turns 20: Two Decades of Understanding, Strengthening and Connecting MPAs

Presented by: Charlie Wahle, Senior Scientist, National Marine Protected Areas Center, NOAA

Date/Time: Thursday May 28, 1 pm US EDT/10 am US PDT/5 pm UTC

Description: Over the past two decades, marine protected areas (MPAs) in the US have evolved from a poorly understood ocean management measure to a more proven and increasingly common conservation tool to protect the ocean’s most important places and the social and economic benefits they provide. In May 2000, NOAA’s National Marine Protected Areas Center marks 20 years of collaborative work to inform and catalyze that transformation by providing critical information and tools to support and strengthen MPA programs in the United States and internationally. This presentation will discuss the issues that led to Executive Order on Marine Protected Areas in May 2000; highlight key contributions of the MPA Center in the US and globally; and chart the course forward to meet today’s emerging ocean challenges.

Co-sponsors: NOAA National MPA Center and OCTO (MPA News, OpenChannels, EBM Tools Network)

Webinar: Plastics or Planet? Moving Beyond Plastics

Presented by: Judith Enck of Beyond Plastics

Date/Time: Thursday, June 4, 1 pm US EDT/10 am US PDT/5 pm UTC

Description: This webinar will explore the environmental, economic, and health implications of plastic production, use, and disposal. Judith Enck of Beyond Plastics will discuss: 1) the nexus of climate change and plastic production and why we can’t recycle our way out of the problem, 2) the potential impacts of the plastics industry’s plans to double production and how the marine debris community can respond to this challenge, 3) the latest plastic reduction laws that are being adopted by local and state governments, and 4) the new federal bill the Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act.

NEW WEBINAR!

Webinar: Virtual Ecosystem Scenario Viewer (VES-V): A new tool for visualizing marine ecosystem models

Presented by: Isaac Kaplan and Howard Townsend of NOAA

Date/Time: Tuesday, June 16, 2 pm US EDT/11 am US PDT/6 pm UTC

Description: Ecosystem models can help explore the tradeoffs inherent in natural resource management decisions. However, the complexity that makes the models robust can also limit the ability of many audiences to understand and use the information provided. A new tool Virtual Ecosystem Scenario Viewer (VES-V) helps to address this problem by illustrating the responses of virtual marine ecosystems to a range of living marine resource management scenarios. These visualizations can help diverse audiences see the potential for applying models in their own marine resource management work and can help facilitate stakeholder engagement and input when exploring future tradeoff scenarios in marine resources management decision making. VES-V is designed to handle a wide range of model outputs and data. This webinar will provide an overview of VES-V and provide a forum for discussing a variety of applications for the tool.

Co-sponsors: OCTO (EBM Tools Network, The Skimmer, OpenChannels, MPA News, MarineDebris.info)

NEW WEBINAR!

Webinar: Investigate Your Ocean Neighborhood with OceanReports

Presented by: Christine Taylor of BOEM

Date/Time: Tuesday, July 28, 1 pm US EDT/10 am US PDT/5 pm UTC

Description:Understanding ocean areas is critical for natural resource management, offshore energy planning, navigation planning, and aquaculture siting as well as many other applications. OceanReports is a publicly available web-based application that allows users to select an Area-of-Interest (AOI) anywhere in the US Exclusive Economic Zone and instantly obtain over 70 unique infographics with analyses of the location. Infographics include the area’s energy and minerals, natural resources, transportation, infrastructure, oceanographic and biophysical conditions, and contribution to the local ocean economy. OceanReports allow users to explore pertinent ocean data through interactive pop-ups and visualizations, toggle map displays of each layer, share results by web link, and print custom reports to inform various permitting processes. Metadata, data download, background information, and the analysis rule-sets are also available. In this webinar, the tool will be explained and demonstrated with a question and answer period to follow. Use the tool athttps://marinecadastre.gov/oceanreports.
