From Producer Laura Abbady:

This is the introduction to the 2nd Annual Cape Coastal Conference airing Wednesday at 3:30 and watch for it “on demand” on the website:

For the second year in a row, Waquoit Bay Research Reserve has gathered respected scientists and community leaders to assess the effects of water quality, nitrogen, climate change, sea level rise and coastal resiliency issues surrounding Cape Cod and how they may impact the coast. Eleven lectures, videoed June 5th and 6th, this year, at the 2nd Annual Cape Coastal Conference are presented in 8 sessions. Careful research has led to scientific conclusions and the information is accessible, engaging and cautionary, reaffirming that we are not powerless,  watching as the beach rearranges and disappears. “Getting to Clean Water”, “Solving our Biggest Environmental Problem”, and Shellfish Aquaculture are from Day One; “Building Resilience to Storms, Sea Level Rise and Climate Change” from Day Two, are the topics, all covered in depth. While some of what climatologists have learned is intimidating, at the same time they have discovered information about what we can be doing now to prepare for the future. If you plan on attending this year’s upcoming Cape Coastal Conference watching the series of lectures is a good introduction to the issues involved.”

Tech Tip….What do coats, blankets, and books have in common with insulation? They can all be used to control sound when you don’t have the proper materials found in traditional studios. Recording audio at home have better results when you place/hang heavy coats, blankets, or cushions around what you are recording, about 2-3 feet away. If you have a bookcase, books are a great way for natural diffusion. Position it behind you to disperse sound back into your absorptive materials. Simple solutions…results may vary.
