Championing Ocean-Based Climate Solutions

Webinar – June 15

Offshore Wind and Upwelling

POET hosted a webinar on the effects of Offshore Wind (OSW) development on marine upwelling on Wednesday, June 15. With several draft call areas for OSW leasing recently identified along Oregon's coast, this is an especially timely topic. Special thanks to Dr. Kaus Raghukumar from Integral Consulting, Inc. for presenting this webinar. Watch the entire webinar, Q&A included, here.
