This symposium will focus on important new research on the changing nature of the world’s oceans and the questions that arise from that change. Beginning with a study of new data relating to the formation of oceans and the origins of early life, the program will then examine how oceans continue to change over climate epochs, as ice sheets form and melt and ocean temperatures change. The impact of these shifts—and of those that result from human use of the sea—on marine life and on islands and coastal areas will lead to discussions about climate change and the role the scientific community can play in understanding and stewarding this critical, yet changing, global resource.
Free and open to the public.
This is the Linda N. Cabot Science Symposium.
