It may seem like the blob was a problem unique to Alaska but other places have also experienced bursts of rising water temperatures. Earlier this month, marine scientists gathered at the 2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting in Oregon to learn from one another and build on each other’s research, including research on warmer water temperatures. KBBI’s Renee Gross caught up with the Director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Kasitsna Bay Laboratory Kris Holderied who attended the conference.
