Why bother understanding the Indian Ocean? - a talk by Professor Peter Burkill

You may think that the Indian Ocean is remote and therefore not of interest. In fact, it is warming extremely fast and the consequences for those living around the rim are very significant. These people form the fastest-growing population on Earth. They depend on the Asian Monsoon yet this is becoming more difficult to predict. This talk will cover what we currently know of the Indian Ocean and what we need to know in the very near future.


Peter Burkill  is a Professor of Ocean Science, President, Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) and Visiting Scientist, National Institute of Oceanography, Goa, India


This talk will be raising funds for the Tavistock Heritage Trust
