Climate and the California Current: Taking the Pulse with CalCOFI
Tony Koslow, Scripps oceanographer
Climate has enormous impacts on the marine life off California, influencing its major fisheries and the abundance of krill, seabirds and mammals. Join Tony Koslow as he shows how a 60-year ocean observation program, the California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations (or CalCOFI) is unraveling the impacts of the El Niño/La Niña cycle, decadal-scale climate cycles and human-induced climate change.
Perspectives lectures are intended for a lay audience.
