Remembering Nirni Kumar

In memory of our friend and colleague, the Nirnimesh Kumar Research Symposium was held Sept 13 & 14, 2021, on the UW campus in Seattle and on Zoom.  We gathered to celebrate Nirni’s many contributions to coastal science and the community of scientists.  The final agenda is below, and a recording of the presentations (only) is here
