Screen shot from the second in the video series 'IMOS in MOcean'


Second 'IMOS in MOcean' video – How does the ocean control atmospheric CO2?

The 2nd video in the 'IMOS in MOcean' series examines carbon and heat transfer between ocean and atmosphere.

Meet the people behind the variety of marine observations that make up the IMOS data collection. Today, IMOS introduces the second in our series of videos called 'IMOS in MOcean'.

CSIRO scientist, Tom Trull, explains how processes that exchange heat and carbon between the atmosphere and the ‪‎Southern Ocean‬ play a key role in global ‪climate change. He also explains how IMOS measures these variables.

This new video represents the work of the the Southern Ocean Time Series Observatory and how partners such as CSIRO collect and use the data.

Other videos currently in various stages of production are:

  • Shark movements – how tracking sharks has revealed startling new insights into their behaviour
  • OceanCurrent – the people behind the valuable up-to-date ocean maps
  • Totten and Mertz glaciers – looks at how warming water beneath the ice shelf is causing ice loss
  • Ocean Data portal – a guide to accessing IMOS data collections as easy as 1,2,3
  • IMOS: an overview – takes a step back and explains what IMOS is about and why time-series observations are so important

A number of other videos are being planned so that the collection of videos will eventually represent the diversity of data collections and collectors, partners and end-users.

Keep an eye out for future episodes and do let us know if you have an idea for a new video.
