Corals and Climate Change: Life after Death on a Remote Pacific Reef

In this talk, Professor Kim Cobb will share her experiences from recent field expeditions to Kiritimati Island, exposing the extreme coral bleaching effects of the largest El Niño event ever recorded in the winter of 2015-16. Cobb's research on corals illustrates how climate change is contributing to severe coral bleaching and mortality, and begins to describe what life after death looks like for a coral reef.
