Moss Landing Marine Labs Seminar Series - February 21st 2019

Hosted by The Physical Oceanography Lab

MLML Seminar Room, 4pm

Open to the public

Abstract
I will present results from a suite of coupled ocean circulation-ecosystem model simulations and describe the impact of environmental variability at local and regional scales on the broader California Current ecosystem response, ranging from primary production to krill distributions to population abundances and foraging patterns of key forage fish species (sardine and anchovy) and apex predators (sea lions).
