Ocean acidification is topic of science presentation at Modesto Junior College

The Modesto Area Partners in Science (MAPS) will offer a presentation on “Ocean Acidification: The Other CO2 Problem” by Tessa Hill, U.C. Davis associate professor in Earth and Planetary Sciences.  The free public MAPS event will be held on Friday, April 10, at 7:30 p.m. in Sierra Hall 132 on the Modesto Junior College West Campus, 2201 Blue Gum Avenue in Modesto, and is intended for people over 12 years of age.

During her presentation Hill will explore the basics of ocean acidification and share research on its impact on marine ecosystems.

Hill holds a Ph.D. from University of California, Santa Barbara.  Her research focuses on the geochemistry of microfossils and corals to determine rates and magnitude of climate change and the forcing mechanisms behind recent climate change. Her recent studies have been on geochemical evidence for gas hydrate dissociation and the penetration of rapid warming to the ocean’s interior.
