Carbon Dioxide and Me: A personal relationship
Presenter Dr Kim Currie is a scientist with NIWA Dunedin, with a focus on marine carbon chemistry.
As part of the Ocean-Atmosphere Interactions group, she is responsible for surface ocean carbon programmes including the pioneering Munida Time Series, a long-running transect of ocean carbon measurements off the coast of New Zealand.
She is a part of a multi-disciplinary team working on ocean acidification in New Zealand, and has initiated a coastal ocean acidification observing network, where she works with a variety of stakeholders and collaborators. Kim also serves as IOCCP Co-Chair and is on the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) Executive Council.
In this talk Kim will discuss how colleagues, collaborations and mentors, as well as meticulous observations are necessary to understand how the global oceans are responding to the carbon dioxide emitted by human activities.
Join for tea, coffee and kōrero at 3:30 pm. Seminar will begin at 4:00 pm.
