Sea and Society Talk: Unravelling oceans past

Sustainability and environment
Science and Information Technology

Ocean policy is becoming increasingly informed by insights into the past. Transdisciplinary collaboration underpins several new large-scale research projects that promise to change how we understand oceans past – and future. In this talk Poul Holm, Guest Professor in environmental history, will highlight how new avenues are being pursued. Questions are being asked that seemed unanswerable a few years ago.
