Bight ’23 to be scoped out during September 22 kickoff meeting at SCCWRP

Posted August 9, 2022
Participants of the Southern California Bight 2018 Regional Monitoring Program attend the program’s all-day kickoff meeting at SCCWRP in 2017. The Bight ’23 kickoff meeting will be held September 22, 2022 at SCCWRP.

Participants of the Southern California Bight Regional Monitoring Program will begin making decisions about which study elements the program will tackle and which management questions the program will answer during an all-day Bight ’23 kickoff meeting on September 22, 2022.

The in-person meeting, hosted by SCCWRP and open to anyone interested in contributing to the program’s 2023 monitoring cycle, will shape how dozens of participants work collaboratively over the next five years to probe different aspects of coastal ecosystem health across Southern California.

RSVSPs are requested by September 12 to SCCWRP’s Christina Rivas. For information about Bight ’23, and to inquire about a remote broadcast option, contact Dr. Karen McLaughlin.

Bight ’18, which is winding down, consisted of five study elements: Sediment Quality, Ocean Acidification, Harmful Algal Blooms, Trash and Microbiology. Final assessment reports are available on SCCWRP’s website.
