The Beach is back! Dr Beach looks at mesocosm predictions of what marine life might be like in elevated CO2 future. Then we catch up with Dr Surf to talk about what surfers do when they can’t go surfing. This could get interesting. Mick Sowry is a true artistic treasure of the ocean – creator of art films ‘Musica Surfica’ and ‘The Reef’ and artistic director of ‘Great Ocean Quarterly – art, ideas and the sea’, a magnificent publication created for ‘sea affected lives’. We'll talk with Mick about creativity during a pandemic, the very exciting long awaited ‘Lost Eighth’ edition of Great Ocean Quarterly in preparation, and getting some big blasts of saltiness that we all need right now. Space and the ocean are often described as the frontiers of science. But why have we mapped more of the surface of Mars and the Moon than the ocean floors of our own planet? ‘Oceans vs Space: the battle of the final frontiers’ is an online debate happening this week where Astronomer Kat Ross and adventurer James Dingley will argue the case for each frontier. We’ll catch up with James Dingley in Perth who is going into battle for our oceans in this fantastic National Science Week event.
