OCTO: The ONo Index: Detecting novel ocean conditions for MPA management
Wednesday, November 16, 2022 (12:00 PM - 1:30 PM) (EST)
OCTO is pleased to announce that it will host:
Presented by: Steven Mana‘oakamai Johnson of Cornell University
Description: A fundamental challenge in ocean conservation is translating the results of climate models into forms that managers and others can use to plan for the future. Using techniques from information theory, the Ocean Novelty (ONo) Index provides a simple and intuitive way to understand how climate change will alter key ocean biogeochemical variables. This measure can help MPA managers know what they need to prioritize in their planning and design policies and regulations that help their MPA keep pace with expected shifts in the ecosystem state. This webinar will share how the ONo Index is calculated and walk through an application for large MPAs.
Hosts: NOAA National MPA Center and OCTO
