The Ocean and Climate Change
The Fall 2017 Aquatic Academy course focused on the role the World Ocean plays in modulating Earth’s climate and how the World Ocean and its ecosystems are responding to climate change. Participants learned about the implications of those changes for the future.
In the third session held on November 8, speakers included Dr. Jennifer Smith from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Her presentation was titled, Coral Reefs in a Warming and Acidifying Ocean.
