Autumn Inaugural Lectures at UEA


The respiration of marine bacteria, phytoplankton and zooplankton directly affects the earth’s climate, influencing how much carbon and oxygen can be stored in the ocean and how much carbon dioxide remains in the atmosphere. Yet we still don’t know a lot about how our changing environment will affect microbial respiration and thus the ocean’s capacity to store carbon.

Join Prof Carol Robinson (School of Environmental Sciences) to learn how we can better understand and predict the future health of our oceans using a combination of techniques including microscopes, research ships, underwater gliders and satellites.

Inaugural lectures recognise and celebrate the promotion of UEA academics to the position of professor, whilst giving audiences the chance to hear about their research and its impact on society. These lectures are free and open to all, and there's no need to book; simply turn up on the night, or watch live via YouTube. Each lecture is followed by a free drinks reception, with a chance to meet the speaker and ask them questions about their research.
