A revolution is underway in ocean and climate science. New technology is making possible new discoveries that will help shape the future health of the ocean—and our planet. Join this VOI I with Carol Anne Clayson, a pioneering physical oceanographer at the forefront of understanding the climate-ocean system, satellite remote sensing and ocean modeling. Learn about her remarkable journey from her home in the Rocky Mountains to becoming a Senior Scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, the world’s premier ocean research organization. Hear how she uses new observations and modeling to investigate the complex interactions between Earth’s atmosphere, ocean, and climate. What has science revealed about the drivers of sea level rise, the transfer of heat between the ocean and atmosphere, and the role of the ocean’s “twilight zone” in global climate? Join us and find out.
