billede: Ukendt

Forelæsning — In this first ROCS lecture series talk, Professor Katherine Richardson, leader of ROCS and the Sustainability Science Centre in Copenhagen, talks about why ocean biology matters for climate concerns and delineates the questions being addressed in ROCS.


Date & Time:

Zoom meeting

Hosted by:
Queen Margrethe’s and Vigdís Finnbogadóttir´s Interdisciplinary Research Centre on Ocean, Climate, and Society (ROCS), University of Copenhagen and University of Iceland



While the potential effects of climate change on living organisms maintain a general sense of urgency, matters of how changes in biological communities may affect climate receive limited attention. Changes in ocean biology are believed to be critical for climate development but we still don’t understand these interactions well enough to properly include them in predictions of future climate. This talk explains why we think ocean biology is important for climate and outlines the questions being addressed in ROCS.

The event is an hour long. We begin with a lecture after which we welcome questions and discussions from the audience.
