Event Description

Full Description:
The Centre for Marine Science will host a Special Seminar - Wednesday 28th March at 1pm, in Goddard Building (8), Room 257.

Coral reefs and climate change: transformation, surprises and resilience from the heart of the 2015-2016 El Niño

Our speaker is Dr Julia K Baum, Associate Professor of Biology at the University of Victoria, Canada, and Pew Fellow in Marine Conservation.

Coral reefs and climate change: transformation, surprises and resilience from the heart of the 2015-2016 El Niño:

Thermal stress from the 2015-2016 El Niño triggered the worst global bleaching and mass coral mortality event on record.

Dr Baum’s long-term field site in the central equatorial Pacific, Kiritimati (Christmas Island) was the epicenter of this event, experiencing ten straight months of anomalously high temperatures.

Dr Baum will present the challenges and discoveries that came from attempting to study ecosystem resilience during this climate change catastrophe on Kiritimati.

We hope to see you there!
