"Dr. Nigella Hillgarth: "The Ocean and Climate Change".
Please join us on Monday, July 22nd at the Stephen Birch Aquarium for a presentation by Dr. Nigella Hillgarth.
The ocean plays a major role in the regulation of the Earth’s climate. In this talk Dr Hillgarth will give a brief introduction to the ocean and climate before discussing the impacts of climate change on our ocean.
The ocean has absorbed much of the heat generated by global warming as well as carbon dioxide. Her talk will cover some of the consequences including sea level rise, storms, bleaching and other ecological impacts on land as well sea, and will be illustrated with images from Greenland, the South Pacific and California.
Our Workshop begins at 7 pm. Everyone is welcome, and if you arrive at 6:30pm, you’ll have time to explore the aquarium before the presentation begins. Admission is free, and there is plenty of free parking.
