UPCOMING

Tuesday February 27, 2024
10 - 11 AM (mountain time, US and Canada)
18:00 Central European Time
Luke Brokensha, Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, University of Tasmania
Long-term records of Southern Ocean diatoms

Description: As the Southern Ocean warms as a result of a changing climate, the effects of these changes on primary producers and zooplankton is widely unknown. To inform our understanding of the impact these changes may have, the utilization of long term Southern Ocean monitoring programs may become key. The Australian Continuous Plankton Recorder (CPR) programs, (AusCPR and SO-CPR) have been sampling the waters between the Australian and Antarctic continents for 30+ years. Using this publicly available data set, we can interrogate CPR records to track patterns, changes and trends in Southern Ocean plankton ecology.

Intended audience: This talk will be directed at anyone with an interest in Southern Ocean plankton, and will be offered at a general level.
