The Nanuet Chamber of Commerce hosted a breakfast at Estrella’s Cafe in Nanuet on Tuesday, March 3 to meet and talk with scientist Andrew Juhl of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. Dr. Juhl has a impressive educational background. He has a PH.D in Biological Oceanography, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego, an M. S. in Biological Oceanography, College of Oceanography, Oregon State University and a B.S. in Zoology, University of Wisconsin, Madison. “As an aquatic ecologist and oceanographer, my research and teaching focus on how aquatic microorganisms and their predators interact with each other and their physical/chemical environment. I emphasize a holistic perspective encompassing the range of planktonic organisms found in coastal marine systems, estuaries, rivers and lakes, including planktonic algae, protist microzooplankton, invertebrate zooplankton, and bacteria.”
Risa Hoag, prepared a series of questions regarding Andrew’s work for Lamont-Doherty with Riverkeeper regarding the general health of the Hudson River. Dr. Juhl was exteremly knowledgable, a great speaker and kept everyone extremely interested as we learned a great deal from Andrew about the health of the river. The breakfast and interview lasted about an hour and was live streamed on the Nanuet Chamber Facebook page. The discussion is available to view on the Chamber Facebook page link.
The event was attended by board members Susan Farise, Valerie Maldow, Erica Sallhian, Risa Hoag, Jerry Tuchband and guests Charles Sallhian and Louise McMath, Development Officer of Columbia University. Everyone present enjoyed a breakfast compliments of the Nanuet Chamber.
