The Day After Tomorrow: Our Oceans and Climate Change

Day After Tomorrow 28 February 2018Wednesday 28th February 7.30pm
The Green House Hotel,  4 Grove Road, Bournemouth BH1 3AX

With Professor of Physical Oceanography Meric Srokosz

Anthropogenic climate change is now accepted by virtually all credible scientists in the relevant fields. Professor of Physical Oceanography Meric Srokosz will be exploring the role of the oceans in climate and climate change, and explaining how the earth’s climate is actually changing and the consequent effects. Points of interest in this presentation will include the impact of sea level rises, the potential changes in global weather patterns, and a look at the effect of ocean acidification. All of these factors could have dramatic effects on both marine ecosystems and human populations, so it is essential that we gain a fuller understanding of them and work together to limit environmental damage.

Professor of Physical Oceanography Meric Srokosz coordinates the Rapid Climate Change programme looking at how changes in the north Atlantic circulation will affect UK and northwest European climate.

“Join us for an expert’s review of the impact of climate change on our planet’s vital ocean ecosystems”
