Oceans cover more than 70 percent of our planet’s surface and make up more than 95 percent of earth’s water. The impacts of pollution and global warming on these massive bodies of water have the potential to affect us all. UW students Emma Hodgson and Maddie Smith will discuss their investigations into the impacts of human behavior and global warming on our oceans, specifically acidification and melting sea ice. Engineering student Molly Grear will discuss the ways tidal energy can be used to mitigate these effects.
