Speaker: Dr. Jerome Fiechter

University of California, Santa Cruz
Topic: Eddy-induced ecosystem variability in the Gulf of Alaska:
results from a data assimilative, coupled physical-biological model
*The Columbia River and Adjacent Waters (CRAW) Seminar Series is an occasional series of multidisciplinary
seminars with a non-exclusive focus on the physical dynamics of the Columbia River, including its
onshore drainage basin, lower-river estuary, and offshore plume, and the regional atmosphere above.
Thus, the CRAW dominion is central to many sustainability issues in Oregon and Washington. And the
CRAW Seminar Series provides a forum for fostering a multidisciplinary, system-wide approach. This approach
will help the Portland Metropolitan Area’s research community gain usefully accurate understandings
of the CRAW physical dynamics, ecological and societal impacts, and responses to climate variability
and global change as priority tasks for the foreseeable future.
