COA Ocean Science Speaker Series

This month Clean Ocean Access is launching a monthly Ocean Science Speaker Series featuring scientists and researchers across disciplines, ranging from marine biology and engineering  to marine affairs and pharmaceutical sciences.

COA board president, Monica DeAngelis, kicks-off the first presentation on Tuesday, November 13th at the Newport Public Library from 6:00 to 7:00PM. Monica is a marine mammal biologist at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center. She holds a Bachelors of Science in biology from University of New Hampshire and a Masters of Science in biology from San Diego State University.

Marine animals use sound to navigate, communicate, find food, locate mates, and avoid predators. Noise is a recognized form of pollution and we’ve begun to recognize the threat it poses to marine life.¬†Monica’s presentation will focus on the impacts of ocean noise on marine life, the sources of human-generated ocean noise, and what is being done and what you can do to address anthropogenic (man-made) ocean noise.

All presentations will be held at the Newport Public Library from 6:00 to 7:00PM.

2019 speaker dates coming soon!
