    Craig Gelpi is the founder and chief scientist of the Catalina Marine Society. He is a physicist employed in the local aerospace industry, but also has dived in Southern California for almost 30 years, including scientific diving at the Wrigley Institute of Environmental Studies. The Society is chartered to advance the scientific understanding of our adjacent ocean using volunteer resources. It designs and executes data collection experiments, works with universities in the analysis of data collected from their experiments, sponsors public lectures and publishes a magazine describing marine-related research in Southern California.

    Ocean Acidification

    Craig will talk about the “other CO2” problem, ocean acidification. He will describe what is meant by the term, what are the facts regarding the measurements of ocean acidification, and what are the expectations and hazards of an acidifying ocean, especially as pertaining to recreational diving. He will also describe the Catalina Marine Society’s project of ocean chemistry measurements off Santa Catalina Island.
