      Science and Society Lecture: Antarctic Biological Hotspots in a Changing Climate

      Join us for an offering in our “Science and Society - Making Sense of the World Around Us” lecture series.

      Biological hotspots like coral reefs, seamounts, and upwelling regions are relatively rare in the ocean. Yet, these special places account for a large portion of ocean biodiversity and productivity How do they work? Antarctic biological hotspots lend themselves to intense study of their structure, function, and vulnerability to climate change, because they are less complex than their counterparts. This presentation explores the structure, function, and threats to a unique Antarctic hotspot using remote sensing, robotics, and animal telemetry in hopes of understanding the physical mechanisms that allow marine hotspots to exist, and whether or not climate will affect its existence.

      Online program from the Lewes Public Library presented by Dr. Matthew Oliver, the Patricia & Charles Robertson Associate Professor of Marine Science & Policy at the University of Delaware College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment. Dr. Oliver’s specialty is understanding how ocean physics shapes life in the ocean.
