Ocean Sciences Meeting ’16

Multiple PacIOOS Co-Investigators presented their research at the 2016 Ocean Sciences Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. Dr. Kim Holland, researcher and lead of the Hawai’i Institute of Marine Biology Shark Research Group, gave a talk on enhanced data throughput from animal-borne tags via land-based Argos-style receivers. The project is supported by the U.S. IOOS Ocean Technology Transition initiative, which sponsors the transition of emerging marine observing technologies. Dr. Jason Adolf, Chair and Associate Professor of Marine Sciences at the University of Hawai’i Hilo, presented a poster on potential climate change impacts in Hilo Bay based on water temperature, river flow and phytoplankton dynamics. Other Co-Investigators and staff presented research findings, such as sea surface currents analysis during the Tohoku Tsunami.
