"Oceans – And the Impact of Humans and Climate Change" – OIST–Tohoku U. 2nd Joint Workshop on Marine Science


Earth's oceans are undergoing a progressive acidification and warming due to increasing anthropogenic CO2 production. While climate change poses a global threat to biodiversity and ecosystem functions little is known about its impact on Okinawan coral reefs. Therefore, this workshop represents a perfect occasion and Okinawa is a perfect place to share and explore the ways in which scientists from OIST and Tohoku University are actively studying the impact of climate change on marine ecosystems across Japan.
