Sailing for oxygen - how citizen science can help understand ocean deoxygenation

On Thursday 7 December 2023, EMB hosted its 35th Third Thursday Science Webinar featuring Toste Tanhua who spoke about "Sailing for oxygen - how citizen science can help understand ocean deoxygenation".


This topic is linked to the science within the EMB Future Science Brief No. 10 'Ocean oxygen: the role of the Ocean in the oxygen we breathe and the threat of deoxygenation' and EMB Position Paper No. 23 'Advancing Citizen Science for Coastal and Ocean Research'.

Toste Tanhua is a Senior Scientist at GEOMAR (Germany) and chemical oceanographer. His work focuses on Ocean ventilation by observing transient tracers and conducting deliberate tracer release experiments to understand ventilation and mixing in the Ocean. He also works on understanding the dynamics of Ocean carbon, nutrients and oxygen. In addition, he is co-chairing the steering committee of the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) and coordinating the EU funded project EuroSea, that aims at improving the ocean observing and forecasting system.

You can watch the recording of the webinar on the EMB YouTube channel.
