Shallin Busch is a research ecologist at NOAA's Northwest Fisheries Science Center (NWSFC). Her current research focuses on how ocean acidification may impact North Pacific ecosystems. Using the NWFSC ocean acidification experimental system, Dr. Busch applies ecological models to explore how acidification's impacts on susceptible species cascade through food webs, via trophic interactions, to affect other species. To date, these species include geoduck, Pacific oyster, mussels, manila clam, Pacific herring, China rockfish, surf smelt, Dungeness crab, krill, and copepods. Dr. Busch aims to generate data relevant to management of species and communities in a changing environment. Dr. Busch served on the Washington State Blue Ribbon Panel on Ocean Acidification, and discusses how their 2012 report is informing state policy decisions.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
