Sunset Seminar: The Rising Ocean Effect on the Gulf of Maine
July 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Guido Corno and Hallie Arno will discuss how a rising ocean is affecting the world and especially the Gulf of Maine at 7:00 pm Wednesday, July 21, at Camden Yacht Club and via Zoom.
Guido Corno, a world recognized global climate expert, will talk about environmental programs to combat climate change. He has led numerous climate change efforts and environmental programs with organizations such as the United Nations, the European Union, the World Bank, the Green Climate Fund and supported G20 meetings. His focus is to promote environmental sustainability and natural resources management. He is currently researching the impact of climate on coastal and marine ecosystems and designing programs to address ocean acidification, deoxygenation and deep-sea conservation.
Hallie Arno is a college student at the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine majoring in Human Ecology. She is interested in pursuing a career in marine conservation and aquaculture. She enjoys doing research along the coast of Maine and has worked with Maine Sea Grant, Hurricane Island Center for Science and Leadership, and Maine Fishermen’s Forum. She was part of a team of students at the Watershed School in Camden that conducted a study on sea level rise in Camden harbor.
Attendees will be able to experience a higher tide as the night of the seminar coincides with a 9:20pm 11.8’ high tide in Camden harbor.
