Join us for an interactive discussion of ocean science, the second in a monthly public series led by GSO graduate students. This second seminar, titled “Storms on the Horizon: Climate Change and Weather” will focus on the ways that global warming is changing the way the ocean interacts with the atmosphere, causing stronger and more frequent severe weather across the globe. GSO graduate students Nyla Husain and Victoria Treadaway will begin by describing how air-sea interactions affect marine weather by the transport of heat, momentum, and gases at the ocean surface. The second part of the talk will focus on how storms affect the chemistry of the atmosphere. All ages are welcome!
These monthly events are designed for the community to get involved and learn more about research at the URI Graduate School of Oceanography. The discussion series continues on every third Thursday of the month. For more information, visit: http://web.uri.edu/chowder-marching/bay-informed/ or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
