Oceans Mini-Series with the Marine Biological Laboratory
Rut Pedrosa Pàmies will talk about tropical cyclone activity, the impact of ocean warming on these extreme weather events, and some of the marine ecosystem responses to tropical cyclones. She will focus on the impact of tropical cyclones on the deep Atlantic Ocean and will show different instruments and tools that can be used to evaluate the ecosystem response.

One.5° is a new UChicago Yuen Campus series that explores this question and seeks answers from global experts from many disciplines. One.5° will highlight and draw attention to the issues, raise awareness and discuss solutions that individuals, communities, institutions and governments should consider to have an impact. We’ll discuss government policy and regulation that is working, how capitalism and corporate behaviors are changing and highlight success stories.
