Come join Grant Deane, a research Oceanographer, to learn about the importance of oceanÂ bubbles in the environment.Â
Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble chronicles a 30 year quest to reveal the role ocean bubbles play in weather, climate and planetary science. Formed by breaking ocean waves and trapped within ancient glacier ice, marine bubbles range from the poles to the tropics and their effects are global in scale. Bubbles bridge air and sea, driving the exchange of gas, chemicals and microbes across wind-driven oceans. The surprising effects of bubbles and some adventures of discovery will be presented.
