COP-26 Video of the Week: Impact of Lost Sea Ice / Ecosystem Collapse with Helen Findley, Walt Meier, and Martin Sommerkorn

What are the impacts of Arctic and Southern Ocean sea ice loss on marine ecosystems and fisheries? How is this ecosystem, so dependent on thick and reliable multi-year ice, going to respond to its decline and complete loss – which will occur even at 1.5°C of warming? This session features Dr. Helen Findley, Biological Oceanographer at Plymouth Marine Laboratory; Dr. Walt Meier, Senior Research Scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center, University of Colorado; and Dr. Martin Sommerkorn, IPCC SROCC CLA and Head of Conservation of the WWF-Arctic Programme.
