08-034: William & Mary Professor to Speak on Local Area Climate Change

HAMPTON, Va. -- The seaboard of Virginia is considered one of the most vulnerable coastal zones in the United States for climate change impacts, according to James Bauer, who has worked on the chemistry and ecology of marine and aquatic systems for nearly two decades.

Bauer, a professor of marine science at the College of William & Mary, will speak on the physical and ecological changes that have taken place over the past century in a colloquium lecture called "Impacts of Climate Change on Coastal Virginia and the Chesapeake Bay." The lecture will be held on Tuesday, June 3, at 2 p.m. in the Reid Conference Center at NASA Langley.

Media interested in interviewing Bauer at a news briefing at 1:15 p.m. Tuesday should contact Emily Outen at 864-7022 by noon for credentials and entry to NASA Langley.

Bauer will speak on the subject again at a free lecture for the general public Tuesday evening at 7:30 p.m. at the Virginia Air & Space Center on Settlers Landing Road in Hampton.
