The rapidly evolving chemistry of the ocean under climate change
Wednesday, September 18, 2013 at 7:00 PM (PDT)
To most people, the deep ocean seems as remote as the surface of the moon. But these deep waters may play a vital role in determining how the Earth's climate responds to the millions of tons of carbon dioxide that human activities release into the atmosphere each year. Learn about new methods for studying carbon dioxide in the deep sea using remotely operated vehicles to establish underwater chemical laboratories that perform precision measurements on gases in the water column and on the seafloor. These experiments have yielded unexpected results on how carbon dioxide interacts with seawater in real environmental conditions.
