SC 204                       THE IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE – PART 2: OCEANS

As our planet warms, humankind must discover solutions to global ecological problems before it is too late. We are being impacted by changing temperatures on land and in the ocean, changes in sea level and acidity, increasingly frequent extreme weather events, biological extinctions, and more. Please join OLLI for the second in a series of classes on the impacts that a changing climate is driving. During this semester’s sessions we will focus on ocean impacts. Specific impact assessments of UCI faculty and the Santa Monica Seafood Company will address: acidification, El Niño, heat uptake, nutrient transport and biological productivity, fisheries, ice loss, sea level rise and the marine carbon cycle.
