Exploring our Oceans: The Cross-talk between Marine Life and Climate Change

By The SIT’N Listen Podcast

The oceans cover 70% of our planet, but did you know that less than 5% of the ocean floor has been explored? In the face of rapid climate change, ocean scientists are racing to understand what makes a healthy ocean and how rapid changes in ocean temperature, currents and chemistry will affect biodiversity, fishing, tourism, land erosion and myriad of other aspects that will affect us on land.

Harvard’s SIT’N Listen Podcast speaks with MIT and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) graduate students Gabriela Farfan and Hanny Rivera about how studying oceans and marine biodiversity can help us better understand and combat climate change.
