Nerdy About Nature

Podchat 10 | Oceanic Microbes, Currents and Climate Change with Julia Huggins

The Oceans are an incredible feature of this planet that we all share, connecting not only coastal communities and ecosystems to one another, but all of the various inland ones that are impacted by and impact our oceans, from deserts in Africa to the temperate rainforests of Turtle Island.  My first repeat guest, Julia Huggins is a biogeochemist, forest ecologist, PHD student and microbe expert who is currently working to collect data on microbes in our oceans, so we sat down on a rugged coastal beach to chat all about it!  Lot's of great info here on the intricacies of our oceans, their current state, and what we can all do to become better stewards of the waters that connect us.
