Briefing on the Sea Grant DDT+ Research Needs Assessment

January 26, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

You’re invited to an Ocean Science Trust briefing in partnership with California Sea Grant and USC Sea Grant to discuss the recently released report, A Deep Ocean DDT+ Research Needs Assessment for the Southern California Bight. Jointly facilitated by both Sea Grant Programs, this community-driven assessment provides a research agenda for future investments and immediate actions to fill critical gaps in our knowledge about the nature, extent, fate, and impacts of deep ocean DDT+ pollution (i.e, DDT and associated compounds) in the Southern California Bight.


Join us for a Q&A with expert panelists:
Dr. Dave Valentine, UC Santa Barbara
Gabrielle Crowe, Ballona Wetlands Land Trust / Gabrielino-Shoshone Tribal Council
Dr. Pádraig Duignan, The Marine Mammal Center
Jenn Eckerle, Ocean Protection Council

Including Sea Grant Assessment Report Authors:
Dr. Amalia Almada, USC Sea Grant
Dr. Lian Guo, California Sea Grant

Moderated by Dr. Liz Whiteman, Executive Director, Ocean Science Trust

Presented in Partnership with California Assemblymember Josh Lowenthal
