COP 20 Lima US Center Panel Presenters Natalya Gallo (Scripps Inst.), Nelson A. Lagos (CiCC) on: Ocean acidification, ocean deoxygenation & upwelling impacts on the marine eco-systems & communities that depend on sea harvesting for their livelihoods. This can be associated with the impacts of climate change and/or greater CO2 content in the atmosphere driving ph changes in the ocean.
Natalya is a PhD student in the Biological Oceanography department at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and is a fellow of the Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation. She is interested in how low oxygen, low pH conditions in eastern boundary current regions with oxygen minimum zones influence the structure and function of demersal fish communities along continental margins and how climate change-driven ocean deoxygenation will impact food webs and our fisheries. Support through the NSF IGERT program for Global Change, Marine Ecosystems, and Society, has allowed her to explore international attitudes towards climate change mitigation and the role of science and scientists in informing policy. She is a proud co-founder of Ocean Scientists for Informed Policy and has attended UNFCCC COP19 in Warsaw, Poland and COP20 in Lima, Peru.
