Dr. Isaiah Bolden School of Earth & Atmospheric Science Georgia Tech Dr. Bolden's faculty page Mon, 04/17/2023 - 12:40pm Skidaway Seminars Please join us Monday April 17 at 12:40 pm for the UGA Department of Marine Sciences seminar. Dr. Isaiah Bolden, an Assistant Professor at Georgia Tech, will present his work entitled Biogeochemical Fingerprints of Change in Coral Reefs across Space and Time. If anyone would like to meet with the speaker after the talk, please email me to set up a meeting (firstname.lastname@example.org). Abstract: Modern coral reefs provide countless ecosystem services to coastal and global populations. However, numerous threats (i.e. sea surface warming, ocean acidification, pollution, dredging, etc.) are contributing to the decline away from coral dominance in these dynamic environments on a global scale. This seminar will discuss current and novel forensic biogeochemical “clues” for fingerprinting and tracking calcifier and photosynthetic community dynamics in modern reefs in the context of this global decline. I will also briefly discuss potential opportunities for similar “clues” to reveal novel quantitative insights toward the impacts of coastal acidification right here in coastal GA. The Zoom link for those of you joining from your computers will be https://zoom.us/j/97461643834. Marine Sciences Room 239 and the Skidaway Auditorium will either host the speaker or have a live feed of the talk. The room will open at 12:25 pm, and the talk will begin at 12:40 pm.
