The third lecture in the Fall 2010 Faculty Lecture Series, The Kilo Nalu Observatory: A window into Hawai'i's coastal reef environment, will be held on Thursday, November 4, in UH Mānoa's Hamilton Library’s Room 301 at 3:30 p.m. 
Professor Geno Pawlak of the department of Ocean and Resources Engineering, will give an overview of the Kilo Nalu Observatory, which has been in operation on the south shore of Oʻahu since 2004, providing a window into Hawaiʻi’s coastal ocean. Pawlak will describe the challenges of working in the coastal reef environment and discuss some of what has been learned about the nearshore physical environment in Mamala Bay.
Originally from Panama, Pawlak received his doctoral degree in Engineering Sciences (Mechanical Engineering)/Applied Ocean Science in 1997 from the University of California at San Diego. He has been on the faculty of UH Mānoa since 2001 and is an active member of the American Geophysical Union, the Marine Technology Society, and the American Academy of Underwater Sciences.
The Faculty Lecture Series is presented by the UH Mānoa Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education, Office of Research Relations and the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Library. The lectures are free and open to the public.
