Panel: Let's talk about the ocean and climate change

Theme day

Let's talk about the ocean and climate change
The ocean is our planet¿s largest carbon sink and plays a key role in regulating the climate. So does the cryosphere: the frozen water of the Earth. However, increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide is acidifying our ocean and the polar landscape has been quickly changing during the last decades.

Why is the ocean-atmosphere interaction in the Southern Ocean relevant to glaciers in the Arctic and seafood in the west coast of Sweden? In this multidisciplinary panel discussion where physical oceanography and marine ecology meet photography and international law, listen to what can be done to drive actions and changes towards a sustainable future.

- Sebastian Swaart, Associate professor in Oceanography, Dept. of Marine Sciences
- Gabriela Argüello, Postdoctor in Law of the Sea, Centre for Collective Action Research (CeCAR), Department of Law
