From Sea to Changing Sea: A Science Symposium about Oceans
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.
The program will begin with a study of new data about the formation of oceans and the origins of early life. Speakers will then examine how oceans have transformed over climate epochs as water temperatures have fluctuated and ice sheets have formed and melted. Leading scientists and policymakers will also consider how human behavior is affecting the seas, and they will explore the impact of these shifts on marine life, islands, coastal areas, and climate change overall. The symposium will conclude by asking what role the scientific community and others can play in understanding and stewarding this critical global resource.
Free and open to the public.
This is the Linda N. Cabot Science Symposium.
