Science made Public: Breaking the Ice

August 9, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Ocean Science Exhibit Center
15 School Street
Woods Hole, MA 02540

SCIENCE MADE PUBLIC – During July and August, WHOI’s Ocean Science Exhibit Center and Information Office at WHOI sponsor a series of public talks by WHOI scientists and engineers designed for a lay audience. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Breaking the Ice: Tracking the Effects of Climate Change in the Arctic

Lauren Kipp, Joint Program Student, Marine Chemistry & Geochemistry Department
The Arctic is particularly susceptible to climate change, but little is known about how increased temperatures, diminishing sea ice, and the thawing of frozen land will affect the Arctic Ocean and its ecosystems. Last summer, researchers from all over the world traveled to the Arctic Ocean to measure ocean chemistry and gain a better understanding of this unique environment. Learn about how the Arctic is changing in response to a warming climate, how we can measure those changes, and what it’s like to conduct research at the top of the world.
