Speaker: Diane Thompson - The future of EL Nino and coral reefs in a warming climate
Click to show meeting description

El Nino events drive intense floods, droughts and temperature extremes all over the world, resulting in massive coral bleaching and mortality on reefs worldwide. However, it is still unclear how the frequency and intensity of these events will change as global climate continues to warm.

In her talk, Diane discuss how we can use corals to study how ocean temperatures and El Nino events have changed in the past and elucidate how they might change in the future with continued warming.

Diane Thompson is an Assistant Professor at Boston University's School for the Earth & Environment. Although Diane grew up in Minnesota, she developed a deep passion for the ocean during childhood snorkeling trips at Buck Island, US Virgin Islands. Diane attended Florida Institute of Technology and graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelors of Science in Marine Biology in the spring of 2006. As part of her undergraduate course work, she studied the reef ecosystems of the Bahamas and the terrestrial and marine ecosystems of Australia. Her thesis researched focused on the relationship between the frequency of thermal stress events in the past and the severity of coral bleaching during recent warm periods.
