Science Cafe | Secrets and Perils of the Southern Ocean, Sept. 20

Science Café presents Dr. Lisa Crockett discussing “Secrets and Perils of the Southern Ocean” on Wednesday, Sept. 20, at 5 p.m. at the Baker Center Front Room.

Crockett, Professor of Biological Sciences, focuses her research on what physiological and biochemical processes limit the ability of Antarctic fishes to tolerate increasing temperatures, and how climate change is likely to affect the fauna of the Southern Ocean. She and her students recently returned from “the ice,” where they gathered samples from the deep ocean. While some analyses were done in Antarctica, others are being conducted back here in Athens.
