Thesis defence: Laurie Charrieau
Laurie Charrieau will defend her thesis work in which she is examining foraminifera, shelled micro-organisms that live at the bottom of the oceans. The thesis focuses on the Skagerrak-Baltic Sea area, a region with strong gradient in terms of salinity, pH and calcium carbonate saturation, oxygen concentration, and varying organic matter content. A combination of spatial, temporal, and culture studies is used in order to understand the response of foraminifera under multiple stressors including coastal ocean acidification.
The thesis is available here.
