NOAA Tsunami Debris Presentation

WHEN: January 23rd, 5:30-7:30 pm
WHERE: Commissioners Meeting Room, Clallam County Courthouse

Nir Barnea, West Coast Regional Director for NOAA’s Marine Debris Program will be speaking at the regular monthly meeting of the Clallam County Marine Resource Committee.  His talk will focus on the marine debris associated with the March 2011 tsunami in Japan, focusing on early post-tsunami observations, NOAA’s debris modeling efforts and more recent observations of debris made in the northeast Pacific Ocean.  There will be an opportunity for questions.

All chapter members interested in the imminent arrival of debris from the Japanese Tsunami should plan on attending.
