  • October 10 – 14:  What’s New in the Big Blue

This week is all about change.  Things are changing in the oceans; sea level, temperature, the way we study and explore the oceans, even the living things that call the ocean home.  These changes mean new conditions for marine life to adapt to and even discovering the existence of new species.  Join us this week as we dive into the science of melting sea ice, newly discovered species, and technology for ocean exploration as we find out what’s new in the big blue.
