UEA Inaugural Lecture: Marine microbes: the engine and lungs of the oceans

From Tuesday 22nd October 2019 18:30

The respiration of marine bacteria, phytoplankton and zooplankton directly affects the earth’s climate, influencing how much carbon and oxygen can be stored in the ocean and how much carbon dioxide remains in the atmosphere. Yet we still don’t know a lot about how our changing environment will affect microbial respiration and thus the ocean’s capacity to store carbon. Join Prof Carol Robinson (School of Environmental Sciences) to learn how we can better understand and predict the future health of our oceans using a combination of techniques including microscopes, research ships, underwater gliders and satellites.
