Episode 12: The Ocean's Role in Climate: Heat and Carbon Uptake in the Anthropocene

Originally Aired January 22, 2016

The oceans play a key role in shaping the Earth's climate and its variability on both short and long time scales. Central to this role is the ability of the ocean to store both carbon dioxide and heat, not only at the surface but also in its deepest layers. New technologies are revolutionizing how we study and predict changes in our dynamic oceans.
