New Perspectives on Marine Ecology: Technology Informs Oceanic Carbon Models – Dr Mark D. Ohman, Scripps Institution of Oceanography

Nov 16, 2018 | biology, earth and environment

About this episode

The world’s oceans are responsible for absorbing large amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, helping to mitigate its warming effect on the planet. However, the way in which marine ecosystems respond to temperature changes can impact the ocean’s ability to capture carbon, disrupting this global carbon cycle. Dr Mark D. Ohman and his team at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego use advanced technologies to investigate how marine ecosystems respond to our warming climate. Their research is helping us to understand ecological responses to ocean warming, and to predict what the future holds.
