Check out this video and poster where UW graduate students explore the theme of ocean change from a multidisciplinary perspective, fulfilling one of the key goals of University of Washington’s IGERT Program on Ocean Change (IPOC). By helping students examine changes in the ocean from an interdisciplinary perspective, IPOC enables them to handle the complex problems an uncertain future for the oceans will present. The diverse approaches – from ecology to social sciences to microbiology – that IPOC students bring to bear on ocean change mirror the multitude of perspectives held on this issue by academics, stakeholders, and the general public. Listen to how the first IPOC cohort is tackling ocean change in their research, and see what others have to say when asked what “ocean change” means to them.
