Oceanography in the Thomas Fire: Preliminary Results from a Graduate Student Led Expedition

Tue, Apr 17, 4:00 PM - 05:00 PM
/ Location: UCSB Library, Pacific View Room (8th Floor Ocean Side)

Come hear about the expeditions of grad students Kelsey Bisson (Geography) and Eleanor Arrington (Earth Science), who set sail on a research expedition in the Santa Barbara Channel in December 2017, just three weeks after the Thomas Fire ignited. Their research team – which also included a musician, videographer, and illustrator – will discuss the unique opportunity they had to investigate the ​real-time impact of ash deposition on the coastal ocean, including a showcase of some of the artistic products from their voyage and next steps for the daily cycle and ash components of the expedition.
