New Topics – Feeling the Burn: Ocean Acidification/Warming and Adaption to a Dynamic Environment
Thursday, November 15, 2018,5:30 pm - 6:30 pm EST
New College’s Division of Social Sciences presents Dr. Andrew Stamper, Science Operations Manager/Clinical Veterinarian, Disney’s Animals, Science and Environment, at Walt Disney World Resorts. Ocean temperatures are changing at an unprecedented rate and magnitude due to natural cycles and from anthropogenic carbon dioxide/methane emissions.
To compound this environmental shift, acid-base balances are being altered by carbon dioxide, decreasing the pH of the water and leading to a suite of chemical alternations. The good news is that through carbon reduction and other techniques such as coral reef rehabilitation, people, businesses, nonprofits and governments are finding ways to minimize carbon production and help ecosystems adapt to climate change/ocean acidification.
