Video Title:
Marine Science in the Morning: Dr. Loraé Simpson
Description:
Welcome to our virtual Marine Science in the Morning lecture series. This year we are SO excited to highlight some incredible women in marine science. Maybe you like your coffee hot or iced, or maybe you like tea. Whatever you drink in the morning, grab a beverage and join us for Marine Science in the Morning! Global climate change is driving the expansion of mangroves into saltmarsh habitat in Florida, which may alter ecosystem processes through changes in ecosystem structure. With their unique structure and migration to higher latitudes caused by climate change, mangroves may help coasts keep pace with sea level rise, increase carbon dioxide sequestration from our atmosphere and combat severe weather events like hurricanes. Expansion of these natural barriers along the Atlantic coast may enhance the sustainability of coastal communities as they face impending changes in a warmer future.
