Guest speaker: Dr. Martin Tresguerres, Scripps Institution of Oceanography
Our February guest speaker is Dr. Martin Tresguerres, assistant professor at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego. He’ll shed some light on global warming’s evil twin – ocean acidification, which could lead to a collapse of the marine food chain if left unchecked. Dr. Tresguerres is currently working with a four-year grant from the National Science Foundation to study the effect of ocean acidification on coral. He’ll share some preliminary findings from that study.
