Thursday, Sept. 25 - The Coastal Anthropocene
6:30 p.m., 49 West Coffeehouse, Wine Bar and Gallery, 49 West Street, Annapolis
Speaker: Dr. Patrick Megonigal, Biogeochemistry, Deputy Director,  Smithsonian Environmental Research Center. Humans have always settled near estuaries and coastal seas, and are highly concentrated near the coast to this day. Human activity has fundamentally changed the biology, geology and hydrology of the coasts through the decline of some species and the introduction of other species, redistribution of sediments, nutrient enrichment and land reclamation. The scale of these impacts has grown to include planet-wide changes such as sea level rise. It is wise to recognize that the present options for managing coastal systems are constrained by past practices, just as future options depend on the decisions we make today.
