Heatwaves: A Panel Discussion about Extreme Heat on Land and Water

This summer was another hot one for many, with long, sweltering stretches of higher-than-usual temperatures—and not just on land. Heatwaves are also sweeping the ocean, with implications for marine life and the people who depend on it. Join us for a discussion about the links between the atmosphere and ocean, why heat waves are on the rise, and what it means for our ocean planet. We’ll watch parts of a recording of a panel discussion among some of the world’s top climate scientists, then talk about it among ourselves afterward. All are welcome.

Recorded on September 21, 2022.

Speakers:        Dr. Glen Gawarkiewicz, Physical Oceanographer, WHOI
Dr. Svenja Ryan, Physical Oceanographer, WHOI
Dr. Jennifer Francis, Atmospheric Scientist, Woodwell Climate Research Center

Hosted by Veronique LaCapra, Director of Special Projects for Advancement, WHOI

Live at Chapel in the Pines and on Zoom.
