5th September: Exploring the mysteries of the deep Atlantic
Illustrated talk by Prof J Murray Roberts FRSB (Head Changing Oceans Research Group, Edinburgh University)

We live on a blue planet with the oceans covering over 70% of Earth’s surface and rely on the oceans for food, recreation and for the oxygen in every fourth breath we take.

The oceans were the cradle for life on Earth and today support an incredible array of habitats from shallow tropical coral reefs to the vast expanses of the deep sea. However, we have entered a period of unprecedented global change. Human activities are not only warming the planet but causing the chemistry of the seas the change more rapidly than at any point in the past. Our oceans have absorbed approximately a third of carbon dioxide released since the industrial revolution. This is shifting the chemistry of seawater towards acidification, a shift that could stress marine life with limestone shells or skeletons.

This lecture will examine the potential implications for life in these changing oceans taking examples from the incredible diversity of marine ecosystems to the west of Scotland in the deep Atlantic Ocean.

3rd October: Tag-n-Track: Part Deux
Illustrated talk by Hayley Douglas (Tag-n-Track Project Officer)

7th November: Peatland Wildlife and Conservation
Illustrated talk by David Hill (Peatland Restoration Project Officer, Butterfly Conservation Scotland)
