    Oceans Out of Breath: Oxygen Minimum Zones in a Warming Climate

    Oceans Out of Breath: Oxygen Minimum Zones in a Warming Climate

    Join Scripps climate scientist Yassir Eddebbar for an exploration of the oceans interior and a fascinating phenomenon oxygen minimum zones (OMZs). With a focus on Yassirs work in the tropical Pacific, learn what causes OMZs, how they are likely to change in response to climate change, and their potential to impact marine ecosystems and fisheries as climate warms.

    Recharge Net Metering (ReNeM)

    Recharge Net Metering (ReNeM)

    Recharge Net Metering (ReNeM) is a novel incentive program that encourages individual efforts to use excess surface water to improve groundwater supply and quality. ReNeM engages agencies, researchers, and regional stakeholders in collaboration towards common sustainability goals. A ReNeMe pilot program was launched in the Pajaro Valley, Central Coastal California. This short video describes the ReNeM program, how it is run, and the benefits it may provide.

    CARTA Presents: The Impact of Infectious Disease on Humans and our Origins: Susan Kaech: Human Adaptive Immunity Against Viral Infections

    CARTA Presents: The Impact of Infectious Disease on Humans and our Origins: Susan Kaech: Human Adaptive Immunity Against Viral Infections

    Infectious diseases have profound influences on the evolution of their host populations. In the case of humans, the host species has also shaped pathogen dynamics and virulence via a multitude of factors from changes in social organization, group size, and exploitation of varied habitats and their animals and plant resources to agriculture, technology, rapid long-distance travel, medicine and global economic integration - which all continue to shape epidemics and the human host populations. This symposium will explore how infectious agents and humans have shaped each other over the eons.
