Bob Dylan says “you don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.” That may be true, but if you’re a mariner, you need information about conditions at sea. Wind speed, wave height, current, temperature, nutrients and chemistry are all being collected along Maine’s coast through a network of sensors, buoys and research tools. The next edition of “Coastal Conversations” will provide an update from a team of University of Maine scientists about the latest technologies and research studies related to coastal ocean observing, and what the data is telling us about our oceans. Join Paul Anderson, Director of Maine Sea Grant and his guests, Drs. David Townsend, Neal Pettigrew, Bob Steneck, and Damian Brady on Friday, August 28th at 10am for a Coastal Conversation about Coastal Ocean Observing in the Gulf of Maine. These experts wont just tell you which way the wind blows, but they’ll take your questions over the phone too.
