The Challenges of Making a Living in the Crowded and Ever Changing Ocean Imagine that every time you went to the grocery store they changed where they put the pretzels, cookies, and paper towels. What would happen if you got there and the deli counter was closed or didn’t even exist? Now picture a store where some of the aisles were mixed with traps with ropes and hooks and when they restocked the shelves a forklift came down the aisle making a deafening sound? Join Dr. Josh Kohut on January 27th, via Zoom, as he discusses the experiences our sea creatures have while in the ocean. This presentation will provide insight into the challenges and realities of living in the dynamic and ever changing ocean. Dr. Josh Kohut earned a B.S. in physics from the College of Charleston and a Ph.D. in physical oceanography from Rutgers University. Josh is currently a professor in the department of marine and coastal sciences at Rutgers University and a member of the Rutgers University Center for Ocean Observing Leadership. Using networks of ocean observing technologies, his research and extension programs focus on the ocean processes that structure marine ecosystems. He is involved in many research programs that range in scope from storm intensity, offshore wind, and local water quality monitoring off the NJ coast; regional fisheries along the US east coast; and environmental studies of polar ecosystems in the coastal waters surrounding Antarctica.
