Chris Maupin talks about studying the coral skeletons of large-mass corals such as these.
It’s time for another podcast. This week Chris Maupin, PhD, returns to talk about his work as a stable-isotope geochemist, oceanographer, and paleoclimatologist. Our discussion focuses on how climate scientists measure CO2 levels using coral skeletons and the work they do to help us understand climate change and global warming. It’s a wide-ranging discussion that will give you a new perspective on the importance of corals and the impact of greenhouse gases on the ocean and our global environment.
