Did you miss the seminary The Expansion of Low Oxygen Zones in the Global Ocean and Coastal Waters?

On February 21, several prominent international professors participated in the full-day symposium The Expansion of Low Oxygen Zones in the Global Ocean and Coastal Waters in Stockholm. The symposium addressed the impact of changes in productivity, biodiversity, and biogeochemical cycles with declining oxygen in the global ocean and coastal waters.

If you did not have the opportunity to participate, the entire seminar is now available at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences' Youtube channel. Click on the links below for each speaker's presentation:
