Irina MarinovAssistant Professor of Earth and Environmental ScienceA Story of the Southern Ocean World Cafe Live, 3025 Walnut Street

The Southern Ocean, the vast and mostly unexplored ocean surrounding Antarctica, takes up most of the human-produced greenhouse heat and a large percent of the carbon dioxide people put into the atmosphere. It is critically important for our planet's climate on both long and short time scales. Marinov will discuss future expected changes in the Southern Ocean's circulation and physics under a warming climate, and the repercussions for the rest of the planet.

Expert faculty from the University of Pennsylvania shed light on their research at the Penn Science Café. It's an evening of engaging, stimulating conversation, with a Q&A session following each talk.

Penn Café events are free and open to the public, but RSVPs are encouraged. Contact Gina Bryan at 215-898-8721 or email bryangm@pobox.upenn.edu.
