Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Professor Andrew Watson FRS, Professor John Marshall FRS and Professor Mike Meredith.

Event details

The Southern Ocean is the most remote and the least understood of the world’s oceans, but plays a crucial role in past and present climate change. Currently it is the focus of intense physical and biogeochemical research. This meeting will bring together observationalists and modellers to exchange their latest insights, and will reach across the disciplines to bring together physical oceanographers, climatologists and carbon cycle scientists.

Biographies of the key contributors and recorded audio files of the presentations are available below and you can also download the programme (PDF).
