Fate of ocean oxygen in a changing climate
Laure Resplandy, Princeton University,

The ocean is losing oxygen in response to warming, a process called de-oxygenation. Yet, observations and climate models have so far shown large departures and uncertainties in the regional patterns of ocean de-oxygenation, with implications for the future of ecosystems and the production of nitrous oxide, a potent greenhouse gas. This talk will present recent advances on ocean deoxygenation that shed light on the fate of ocean oxygenation and reconcile prior controversies.
