The ecosystem of Antarctica is changing in response to global atmospheric and ocean warming at a rate faster than any other marine ecosystem in the world. The study of Antarctica by Lamont-Doherty scientists thus offers early lessons on the types of changes that we can anticipate elsewhere. Professor Hugh Ducklow has been observing these changes at Palmer Station on the Antarctic Peninsula for more than 10 years. Join us as he discusses how these changes could provide clues to help predict ecosystem change throughout the world.
