The Oceans and Global Warming

Hot Water: The Oceans and Global Warming

July 21 & 22

Water covers nearly 70 percent of its surface, so it's no wonder that the world's oceans play such an important role in global climate changes. As the planet heats up, the oceans wind up being by far the biggest reservoir for taking up the extra heat. This talk will cover the ins and outs of global warming as they pertain to the world ocean.

Speaker:

Dr. Josh Willis, Oceanographer and Climate Scientist, JPL
