Ocean Responses to Climate Change and Why This Matters
480 South Broad Street
Get a glimpse into the innovative and impactful research taking place at Penn Arts & Sciences at the Penn Science and Lightbulb Cafés. The lecture series is free and open to the public and takes place in Center City at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre.
Oceans are a fundamental piece of our climate: they absorb 94% of the heat and a quarter of the carbon dioxide added to the atmosphere by humanity, effectively slowing down global warming. But climate change affects the oceans in turn, altering circulation patterns, acidification, and ecology and biodiversity. For Earth Day, Irina Marinov will discuss the critical role of the oceans and the wide-ranging consequences of global warming.
