Abstract

The special session "Emerging tools for synthesizing and communicating ecosystem information" includes a 30-minute panel discussion divided into two 15-minute blocks within the allotted session time. Panelists include Joel Baker, UW Puget Sound Institute; Rob Fatland, Microsoft Research; Amy Merten, NOAA's Office of Response and Restoration; Ian Perry, Fisheries and Oceans Canada; and Charles Simenstad, UW School of Aquatic and Fishery Science. The panel will discuss strategies for improving information flow among scientists, stakeholders and policymakers within the Salish Sea region. Questions will touch on key information needs and gaps, the potential value or hindrance of new technologies in addressing these needs, and how emerging media is changing the way scientists conduct, define and convey ecosystem synthesis.
