The next seminar in Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Community Science and Technology Seminar Series, “Improving Environmental Monitoring, Reduce Stressors, and Get Marine Renewable Energy Devices into the Water,” presented by Alicia Amerson, a marine biologist at PNNL, will take place on Tuesday, May 11, 2021, at 5:00 p.m., via Zoom.
The Triton Initiative is researching various environmental monitoring technology and methods to understand how different types of stressors caused by marine renewable energy devices can be tested. The research focuses on the known environmental stressors identified in the State of the Science Report produced by PNNL’s OES-E team. The stressors include collision risk, underwater noise, electromagnetic fields, or changes in habitat. The information gleamed from this research will produce a set of recommendations to inform regulators on how to safely permit marine renewable energy devices bringing the nation closer to meeting climate change goals and reducing dependency on fossil fuels.
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Community Science and Technology Seminar Series was launched to help the general public better understand and explore how science transforms our world.
