The United Nations climate negotiation, known as the 23rd Conference of the Parties or COP23, took place in Bonn, Germany Nov. 6-18. Nearly two dozen scientists and students from the University of California San Diego joined UC Revelle, the NGO that represents the University of California system, at the event. UC Revelle researchers delivered seven press conferences at COP23 on subjects ranging from the effects of climate change on global fisheries to the management of the Southern Ocean.
Below are video links to each of the seven presentations:
"Understanding Oceanic and Atmospheric Phenomena and their Role in Climate Models" (Tashiana Osborne, Maddie Hamann/Scripps Institution of Oceanography)
"What climate change means for global fisheries catches and human populations that rely on them" (Andrew Johnson, Alfredo Giron/Scripps Institution of Oceanography; Liz Hetherington UC San Diego Div. of Biological Sciences)
"Contemporary Issues In Southern Ocean Management" (Frederick Hemans/UC San Diego School of Global Policy and Strategy)

Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego, is one of the oldest, largest, and most important centers for global science research and education in the world. Now in its second century of discovery, the scientific scope of the institution has grown to include biological, physical, chemical, geological, geophysical, and atmospheric studies of the earth as a system. Hundreds of research programs covering a wide range of scientific areas are under way today on every continent and in every ocean. The institution has a staff of more than 1,400 and annual expenditures of approximately $195 million from federal, state, and private sources. Scripps operates oceanographic research vessels recognized worldwide for their outstanding capabilities. Equipped with innovative instruments for ocean exploration, these ships constitute mobile laboratories and observatories that serve students and researchers from institutions throughout the world. Birch Aquarium at Scripps serves as the interpretive center of the institution and showcases Scripps research and a diverse array of marine life through exhibits and programming for more than 430,000 visitors each year.
