Antarctica is the coldest, driest and windiest continent - an extreme environment that is home to a surprisingly large diversity of species. However, it is a place with no native peoples, no permanent human residents, and no local economy. So why is it important for us to understand the Antarctic? In this talk, Dr. Karentz will provide an overview of the importance of Antarctic science in the context of international collaboration, and the governance and environmental protection of Antarctica and the surrounding Southern Ocean.
Speaker: Deneb Karentz, UC San Francisco
