In celebration of World Environment Day, join us for this special online event, discussing climate change and the impacts on our oceans. 

Due to anthropogenic activities, the carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration in the atmosphere has increased at an unprecedented rate and reached levels not seen in more than 1 million years.

In this special one-hour event, Laurie Menviel (Associate Professor at UNSW) will discuss the role of the ocean in modulating the concentration in atmospheric CO2. This will take the form of a 20-minute presentation followed by the opportunity for participants to engage in meaningful discussion and exchange. 

EVENT IS IN FRENCH. We recommend a level B2 + to participate. 

About your speaker:

Laurie is an Associate Professor at UNSW at the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences.

Laurie's goal in her research is to understand the processes that led to past changes in climate and in the concentration of atmospheric CO2 to better project future changes. She is particularly interested in understanding how changes in the oceanic circulation, for example in oceanic current strength, impact climate and the transfer of carbon between the ocean and atmosphere.
