Continuing the theme of Ocean Sustainability and Global Warming, this evening there will be a talk by Professor Isabelle Ansorge, Head of Oceanography University of Cape Town, about her research entitled "What goes up must come down - understanding the global conveyor belt and its long-term impacts” 

Professor Isabelle Ansorge is one of the most influential women in the world of science. She heads the Oceanography department at the University of Cape Town. Isabelle was the very first woman Ph.D. graduate in the department. Her areas of interest include Indian, Atlantic and Southern Ocean dynamics, Southern Ocean eddy transports of heat and salt, frontal dynamics and variability in the Antarctic Circumpolar Current and its effects on Subantarctic Islands, the Agulhas Current, ARGO, Training of undergraduate and postgraduate students at sea.

Isabelle as a child always wanted to be an oceanographer. “When I was 13 my father sent me off for 6 months on a Tall Ship to sail around Africa. And so, having grown up on sailing ships and sailing the world at a very young age it seemed only natural to follow in my passion to build a career around the sea."

This evening will take place as an on-line Zoom meeting.
