Irina Marinov A Story of the Southern OceanPenn Science Cafe 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. The Southern Ocean 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.
