So, I always make light of the fact that I'm doing coastal and marine research and my affiliation is in the mountains. So, my joke is that I'm from that "prestigious, marine science institution, Appalachian State University." It might receive a bit of a chuckle but I imagine folks give me a pat on the back for the effort at the making of some levity. This time I'm making even more effort. After my introduction with the phrase in quotes I'll then advance to slide 2 and explain that I've never included a visual aid and here it is ... "You can see the marine science institute right on the water on the left."
Anyway, here are my slides: Economic Value of Coastal Tourism[*.pdf].
