SEBS Virtual Science Cafe Series: Hot Days in a Melting West Antarctic Peninsula
with Oscar Schofield
Travel down to the West Antarctic Peninsula, one of the fastest warming locations on Earth. The rising temperatures are decreasing the amount of sea ice present and changes are now rippling through the food web. We discuss the findings of a 30-year effort to document the changing ecology of this region and reflect on how it provides a picture of the future of polar regions on our warming planet.
Oscar Schofield, Professor of Marine and Coastal Sciences presenting.
