We speak with Dr Katharina Fabricius about climate change’s impacts on the oceans and coral reef ecosystems. We also talk about how little the ocean has been explored, that it is the worlds largest carbon sink, the effects of coral bleaching, ocean acidification, if there is any potential for corals to adapt to warmer ocean surface waters, and other topics.

Katharina is a coral reef ecologist and a Senior Principle Research Scientist at The Australia Institute of Marine Science. She’s been researching corals for over 30 years from Australia to the Caribbean. Currently, she leads a research project looking into the long-term effects of ocean acidification in collaboration with scientists from 20 organisations. Katharina has also published over 150 scientific journal articles and advises government and non-government bodies on all things related to corals, acidification, climate and water quality.
