400 ppm CO2 and Why Earth History Matters

ST. PETERSBURG, FL - Tonight at 7 PM our own Gene Domack will be speaking on at the Weedon Island Preserve”s lecture series: Salty Topics Marine Research.

His lecture is entitled:"400 ppm CO2 and Why Earth History Matters”  . See link and description below.

Salty Topics Marine Research Speaker Series

400 parts per million CO2 and why Earth History Matters

Early in 2013 the earth’s level of atmospheric carbon dioxide surpassed the 400 ppmv mark for the first time since records have been kept. Yet in the ten years prior to this “event” global mean temperature have remained more or less static, despite the strong evidence linking increasing greenhouse gases to rising atmospheric temperatures. This “stasis in the global warming” record has challenged earth scientists to understand the sensitivity of the climate system to greenhouse gas increases. So far hypotheses suggest one of two explanations, both related to the interaction of the oceanic and atmospheric part of the climate system across the southern ocean. This talk for the general public will discuss the sensitivity issue of the earth’s climate system, how CO2 has changed over geologic time scales, and the role of the southern ocean in regulating the global climate system. Of importance will be the boundary state of the earth’s deep water mass in past periods of earth history and how that compares to today.

Speaker Biography:

Eugene Domack is a professor of Geologic Oceanography at the College of Marine Science-University of South Florida. He has participated in over 20 ocean going expeditions to the Antarctic margin, 17 as chief scientist. He has worked in ancient geologic strata in East Greenland, Svalbard, Namibia (Africa), and Tasmania (Australia). He is an elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Geophysical Union. He also is the recipient of a J. S. Guggenheim Fellowship.

The speaker series is located at Weedon Island Cultural and Natural History Center at 1800 Weedon Drive NE, St Petersburg, FL 33702. Light refreshments generously donated from the Friends of Weedon Island (http://fowi.org) will be served prior to the 7 p.m. seminar. Please arrive 15 minutes early to sign in.

Engineering Ocean Solutions

SEATTLE, WA - Join Philippe Cousteau Friday, March 6, 2015 1pm EST/10am PST as he meets with finalist teams for the                             The Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE live from the Seattle Aquarium. Pioneering the future of ocean acidification research, these teams of engineers have been challenged to "create pH sensor technology that will affordably, accurately and efficiently measure ocean chemistry from its shallowest waters… to its deepest depths."

Through years of research, development, and testing each team is eager to share their knowledge of ocean acidification and engineering practices with students from across the globe. Classrooms will be able to ask questions of the teams in real time. 

This hangout is best suited for high school classrooms.

C-IMAGE students receive the Admiral James D. Watkins Award

ST. PETERSBURG - Last week at the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science Conference, two of our C-IMAGE students were selected to receive the Admiral James D. Watkins Award.  The James D. Watkins Award is presented only when the highest standard of merit has been proven and recognizes those who have distinguished themselves as champions of ocean science through sponsorship of legislation, development of sound ocean policy, or promoting federal investment to advance the field of oceanography.

Kristina Deak is a PhD student of Dr. Steve Murawski, and Lindsey Dornberger is a PhD student of Dr. Cameron Ainsworth
