Peninsula College, Room J-47, Wednesday, February 27, 2013, 6:30-8:00 pm.

Dr. Andrea Ogston will present findings of the Elwha sediment plume, both from the perspective of
the water surface and of the underwater view of the seabed. Dr. Ogston is a professor of Oceanography with the University of Washington.

These events are the evening public forums of the 8th annual meeting of the Elwha Nearshore Consortium, a group of citizens, scientists, and managers dedicated to promoting and understanding the nearshore restoration associated with the Elwha dam removals. The Elwha Nearshore Consortium is coordinated by the Coastal Watershed Institute in collaboration with Peninsula College, the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe, The Surfrider Foundation, and Olympic National Park. This event is co-sponsored by the Olympic Peninsula Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation and with grant funding from Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
