Ocean Climate Solutions with Project Drawdown
Dr. Elizabeth Bagley
The ocean is in trouble, but there are lots of solutions we can put into place to turn the tide. Dr. Elizabeth Bagley, Director of Drawdown Learn at Project Drawdown, will explain the science of climate change and how it affects the ocean. She’ll also highlight the amazing solutions - both nature-based and people-powered -- that will help us make a difference.
Sketches from the Deep: Tiny Plankton & Ocean Innovation
Dr. Amy Mass
Even though the ocean covers 70% of the planet’s surface, more than 80 percent of our ocean is unmapped, unobserved, and unexplored. Dr. Amy Maas, Associate Scientist at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences and the NASA Exports project team explain how innovation and technology help ocean scientists study plankton, the tiny guys who matter a lot.
Sketches from the Deep: Drawing Sea Creatures
Dr. William Beebe
Artists, grab your paints, pencils, and pastels and participate in a virtual drawing exercise of three deep sea marine creatures with Dr. William Beebe. Share your sketches using #storiesxfuture. In 1934, Dr. Charles William Beebe - a biologist and naturalist -- was the first to explore the deep sea with a record breaking dive of 3028 feet in the bathysphere, a revolutionary innovation for deep sea exploration. Dr. Beebe was connected through a telephone to scientists and artists on board the ship at the surface. They used Dr. Beebe's descriptions to draw the fantastical sea creatures Beebe described.
Dr. Jason Graff
Dr. Graff is an Assistant Professor Senior Research at the Oregon State University Department of Botany & Plant Pathology. He's also a researcher on the NASA Ocean EXPORTS team studying the transfer of carbon to the deep ocean through phytoplankton. Follow his journey into ocean science and learn what innovations help his work as an oceanographer.
