New 'Naked Scientists' series investigates our oceans
Date:8/24/2010

nce" section of the Naked Scientists Forum. On the Naked Oceans website there will be further information about the topics covered in the shows, including links and access to relevant research papers.

The first episode of the series, from July, focuses on oil spills and their impact on the ocean environment. Robinson Fulweiler from Boston University and Amy Hirons from NOVA Southeastern University in Florida discuss the potential impact of the recent Gulf of Mexico spill.

This month's episode considers climate change in the oceans. David Barnes from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) and David Thomas from Bangor University will be talking about climate change in the antarctic and the arctic. This show will also include a report from the cold room at the BAS, where creatures from the Southern Ocean are kept for study.

The third show, which will be online in September, will examine the science of tracking sharks. Guests will include Mahmood Shivji from the Save Our Seas Foundation Shark Research Centre and the Guy Harvey Research Institute in Florida, who will talk about using genetic tools to track the shark fin trade. Future episodes will look at topics such as whaling, pollution in the oceans and overfishing.

To launch the series, highlights from the first two episodes will feature in a special marine-themed episode of The Naked Scientists' weekly, one-hour podcast, available from Tuesday 24th August.
