SOCCOM Google Hangout - Dec 3, 2015

This year wraps up with big climate and weather news – on international efforts in Paris to reach a global agreement on limiting emissions, about the strong El Nino in play in the Pacific Ocean, and with the acknowledgment that this year will be the hottest ever recorded.

Join us for a Google Hangout that explores the critical role the Southern Ocean plays as it relates to current events, and hear from some of the world’s leading climate scientists and educators as they reveal what new research gleaned from robotic floats tells us about the huge and important body of water that encircles Antarctica.

On the Hangout:

  • Moderator: Heidi Cullen, Climate Central
  • Joellen Russell, University of Arizona
  • Lynne Talley, Scripps Institution of Oceanography
  • Greg Brusseau, University of Washington
  • Veronica Tamsitt, Scripps Institution of Oceanography
  • Isa Rosso, Scripps Institution of Oceanography
  • Ron Banas, Princeton Day School
  • Jack Madani, Princeton Day School


SOCCOM Google Hangout - Mar 18, 2015

Hear from leading Southern Ocean scientists as they discuss their experiences with an innovative new technology that’s making it possible to better understand how the vast, remote Southern Ocean is shaping the climate, and how global warming is affecting this critically important ocean.

This is the latest in a series of Hangouts by the NSF-funded Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling (SOCCOM) project. The initiative focuses on unlocking the mysteries of the Southern Ocean and determining its influence on climate.

On the Hangout:

  • Hans Jannasch (Senior Research Specialist, MBARI)
  • Rick Rupan (Research Engineer, University of Washington)
  • Alison Gray (Postdoctoral Fellow, Princeton University)
  • Hannah Zanowski (Ph.D. Candidate, Princeton University)
  • Heidi Cullen (Chief Scientist, Climate Central)
