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 fourth session held November 15, speakers included Dr. Katherine RM Mackey, Clare Boothe Luce assistant professor of Earth system science at the University of California, Irvine. Her presentation was titled, Our Changing Ocean: Exploring Causes, Consequences, and Solutions.
