At no time has a clear picture of our oceans' health been more important than now, as the international agreement reached in Paris to limit and reduce our carbon emissions goes into effect November 4.

That picture is coming into greater focus as scientists studying the Southern Ocean through the NSF-funded SOCCOM project begin analyzing data gathered by more than four dozen robotic floats deployed into this critically important body of water that encircles Antarctica. 

Join us Tuesday, October 25, at 2:30 pm EDT (11:30 am PDT) as leading oceanographers discuss the latest, and sometimes surprising, findings coming from their SOCCOM research. 

You'll have the opportunity to ask the scientists questions during the Hangout, or via Twitter at #SOCCOMHangout.
