PechaKucha Night - Arctic Ocean

Oceans hold the key to the future of all life on earth. Still, we know more about the surface of the moon than we do about our oceans!

Most of the Arctic is covered by ocean. Great resources, which might solve challenges such as the need for medicine, energy and food for a growing global population, can be found in the Arctic. Despite being among the cleanest and best managed oceans in the world the Arctic Ocean is affected by global problems, such as micro plastics and acidification.

What do we need to know about the Arctic Ocean to make the
best use of it, and take best care of it, for future generations? How can science and research help fill the gaps in our knowledge
about the Arctic Ocean?
