The Vital Role of the Oceans in Climate Change
By Brian Saunders

Online Zoom Meeting

Free and open to everyone

The Vital Role of the Oceans in Climate Change

This presentation will cover some basic Climate Change concepts, from past and present and what it all means for our future. In particularly, I would like to address the role the Oceans play in mitigating much of the causes of climate change and how scientists today are studying the Oceans intensely to find clues as to how the consequences of climate change will play out for our future.

Climate Change is best understood through the lens of many disciplines. From the basics of chemistry and physics to the application of biological systems and the Gaia hypothesis, scientists can dissect the fundamental causes of the climate crisis. 

It is my hope to present these topics, which have framed my teaching over the past 25 years, in a fun, but meaningful way so that we can better appreciate the workings of our planet.

This presentation is oriented towards the general public, no technical background required, there will be plenty of time for questions if you wish to dig deeper.

Host Note: I’ve seen Brian do this presentation and I can assure you that it will be both entertaining, educational and eye opening. I look forward to seeing the presentation again.
