Hands-on Climate

Participants at a WHOI-sponsored event on ocean acidification in August examined the skeleton of a two-week-old coral grown by MIT/WHOI Joint Program student Liz Drenkard (right) for her climate change research. Drenkard uses computer models, field studies, and laboratory experiments to understand how environmental factors, such as warmer temperatures and more acidic ocean water, influence corals' response to current and future climate changes. Researchers were on hand to explain different facets of ocean acidification, a problem that results from the increase of carbon dioxide, or CO2, released into the atmosphere, in part from increased burning of fossil fuels.
