A year in the sub-Antarctic: Marion Island

Mrs Paige Green (Research Assistant, University of Tasmania - Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies)
Imagine spending a whole winter on Marion Island as a seabird field biologist working for the Oceans and Coasts branch of the South African government. It was life changing, spectacular and breath taking (in more ways than one!).

Paige Green has a background in ecology and zoology, and a MSc in marine biology. She has worked as an environmental consultant and field biologist, and enjoys sharing stories about her experiences in the field.

The impact of climate change on the ocean

Dr Andrew Lenton (Principal Research Scientist, CSIRO / ACE CRC / CSHOR)
We all get that climate change has the potential to lead to significant shifts in the marine environment. Can we predict the future? We'll look at scenarios under different levels of climate change based on earth system model projections.

Dr Andrew Lenton is an ocean carbon cycle modeller in CSIRO’s Climate Science Centre, and contributor the IPCC Reports. His work explores the impact of climate change on the marine environment and the ecosystem services it provides.
