Listen to CSIRO research scientist Dr Matt Chamberlain — he gives an excellent description of how oceans and the climate interact, and how modern scientific methods are used to try and understand this interaction. Matt’s background is in geology and geophysics and he has worked both in the wilds of Antarctica, and in the deserts of America for the University of Arizona and then the Planetary Science Institute. His work focusses on bio-geochemical interactions in the ocean, these are important to understand since the ocean is understood to play a very big role in the carbon cycle, and hence, changes to both the atmosphere above the ocean, and the currents and temperatures in the oceans themselves may have large implications for the way that these cycles operate.
