Please join us for our next speaker in the EOAS Colloquium on Friday Oct 29 at 3pm over zoom:

Dr. Lisa Levin,

Distinguished Professor of Biological Oceanography and Marine Ecology, at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scripps_Institution_of_Oceanography>.
TITLE: Deep-Sea Sustainability Challenges in the 21st century: Biodiversity, Climate, Resource Extraction and an Imperative for Science Diplomacy
The deep ocean, once considered a vast desert, has proven to be comprised of many different types of ecosystems. These support a wealth of biodiversity and provide many ecosystem functions and services critical to the health of the planet. As the human population continues to grow, pressures on the deep ocean from climate change and resource extraction are inextricably rising, creating a serious situation in our planet's greatest frontier.  This presentation will discuss the science of climate change in deep-ocean environments, manifested as warming, ocean deoxygenation, ocean acidification and altered food supply, and will consider how ecosystems responding to these changes may be faced simultaneously with direct disturbance from fishing, energy extraction, mining, or contamination. Managing for sustainability of the deep ocean will require new knowledge, climate consciousness and a way to surmount the significant challenges posed by current siloed governance systems.   The Deep Ocean Stewardship Initiative (DOSI) brings together deep-sea practitioners across disciplines to address these challenges.
