It is not often that a community like Coronado has an opportunity to hear firsthand from experts in marine biology, oceanography, environmental science, and climate science.
Well, Coronado’s young and old have just such an opportunity... to sit in a room with one of the renowned marine science and climate experts in the world—one who lives and works in our own “backyard.” Dr. Mark Merrifield, Director of the Scripps Center for Climate Change Impacts and Adaptations will be speaking in the Library Winn Room on Monday, September 27, at 7:00pm.
The opportunity to meet a Director of UCSD’s world class Climate Center is one NOT to be missed by aspiring students or community members seeking to be informed. Consider this one climate impact projection: the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts by the end of the century, the seas will rise nine feet in Coronado! Check out their model https://bit.ly/2yRqgH4 and see what will happen to Coronado if projections are correct; the Cays, Amphibious Base, homes along First Street and many others will be impacted. The Spanish Bight will return and North Island will once again be an island.
Come learn about sea level rise and how climate change is increasingly accelerating this phenomenon.
