Public Lecture: New Technologies for Ocean and Climate Research


The oceans have absorbed 93% of the heat and 27% of the carbon dioxide produced by humans. By doing so, the effects of climate change have been less than we might have otherwise experienced. But ocean warming and carbon uptake have caused changes in ocean circulation, chemistry and biology that we struggle to understand. This lecture will explain the ways in which the oceans help to slow climate change, the impacts on the oceans, and the tools we use to understand the past, present, and future climate.
