Title:
How pollution is changing the ocean's chemistry
Speaker:
Triona McGrath
Description:

As we keep pumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, more of it is dissolving into the oceans, leading to drastic changes in the water's chemistry. Triona McGrath researches this process, known as ocean acidification, and in this talk she takes us for a dive into an oceanographer's world. Learn more about how the "evil twin of climate change" is impacting the ocean -- and the life that depends on it.
