Carlos Ramos Scharrón, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Geography and the Environment
In this lecture, Carlos E. Ramos-Scharrón focuses on two case studies, St. John-U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, and will present efforts to document the impact that changes in the use of the land have had and are currently having on water quality and coral reefs. He will also discuss the challenges of translating scientific endeavors into a language that is palatable to the public and hence leads to the development of effective mitigation strategies.
