Oceans Day at Copenhagen

The ocean plays a critical role in Earth’s climate system. For the first time, the United Nations Climate Change Conference will include an Oceans Day. Held on December 14, Oceans Day will highlight the direct link between climate change, ocean health, and human well-being. Susan Avery, director and president of WHOI, will present an introductory overview to Ocean Day attendees, who include H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco (delivering the keynote address) and many other international policymakers. (Photo by Chris Linder, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
