Sarah Henkel, a benthic ecologist based at Oregon State University’s Hatfield Marine Science Center, will speak on “Tracking Crabs: A Highly Collaborative Scientific and Law Enforcement Adventure,” as part of the HMSC Seminar Series in the Guin Library seminar room at the Hatfield Marine Science Center (2030 S.E. Marine Science Dr.) in the South Beach area of Newport.  Her lecture, free and open to the public, takes place at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 16.

Dr. Henkel is an associate professor and senior researcher whose research interests address potential effects of human activities (such as marine renewable energy installations, marine reserve designations, coastal development, invasive species, climate change) on bottom-associated fish and invertebrates. This involves fieldwork from the nearshore to the outer continental shelf from northern California to Washington. She also serves as an associate director of OSU’s Pacific Marine Energy Center and as the director of environmental studies for the PacWave open-coastal test facility which includes the planning and execution of environmental research and monitoring at the wave energy test sites. Her PhD in marine science is from the University of California at Santa Barbara.
