Climate Change and the Southern Ocean

Tuesday, November 24, 2015
On Thursday, December 3, 2015 ,at 11:30 am ET the Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling (SOCCOM) project is having a Google Hangout that will explore the critical role the Southern Ocean plays as it relates to current events (Paris climate talks, warmest year on record), as well as discuss our upcoming biogeochemical float deployments and outreach to local schools.
 
This year wraps up with big climate and weather news – on international efforts in Paris to reach a global agreement on limiting emissions, about the strong El Nino in play in the Pacific Ocean, and with the acknowledgment that this year will be the hottest ever recorded.
 
Join SOCCOM for a Google Hangout that explores the critical role the Southern Ocean plays as it relates to current events, and hear from some of the world’s leading climate scientists and educators as they reveal what new research gleaned from robotic floats tells us about the huge and important body of water that encircles Antarctica.
