Robin Banner

Climate change has affected not only the world’s oceans, but the coastal communities relying on them. Oceanography student Robin Banner’s study of coastal science in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta connects the changing planet to economic and social livelihoods of these communities (who do everything from wash their laundry and bathe in these waters, to wash the food they eat in this tributary). Banner–who’s been studying the relationship between the river and the ocean–will share how rising sea levels have altered the balance between the river and those who depend on it.

Presented by: Town Hall and the University of Washington’s Engage Science Series, as part of The Seattle Science Lectures.
