One of the presentations that sparked the most interest on my behalf was Dr. Dunton’s presentation on “The Ecology of Artic Estuaries in a Changing Climate: The Critical Linkages to Watersheds.” Dr. Ken Dunton, of the Marine Science Institute, presented a topic that has been of growing interest in society today. An increasing number of questions regarding the ecological effects all the way to global climate change arise as soon as new research is published.
