Event description

Description

Professor Johnston will discuss emerging evidence from our changing coasts. From the tropics to the poles, nearshore coastal systems are changing. Can we see into the future by looking through space? Experimental ecology combines with the observational to inform our predictions of the constantly re-created fringe of the sea.
