Ka Pili Kai Spring 2012

In this issue of Ka Pili Kai we are highlighting just a few of the talented graduate students tackling some of today’s most challenging issues. These individuals, the graduate students participating in the UH Sea Grant graduate trainee program, are provided with valuable opportunities to further their research as well as gain first-hand experience conducting outreach and education in the broader community. In this issue we will highlight the research they are conducting which includes: 1) the study of endemic Hawaiian limpets (‘opihi) and how these species impact the intertidal zone; 2) how the mixing of fresh groundwater and seawater impacts our coastal ecosystems; and 3) how climate change, in particular the increased emission of atmospheric carbon dioxide, is impacting Käne‘ohe Bay on O‘ahu. In addition, we will introduce the current fellow from Hawai‘i participating in the Dean John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship as well as one of the very talented UH Sea Grant alumni who is an established leader in his field.
