Uni of Hull - Wilberforce Lecture theatre 15

In this interactive lecture we will explore how future ocean conditions affect smell molecules that are used by marine animals to find their food, potential partners, a new home or identify a hungry predator. We will take a look at how hermit crabs find their dinner, experience what future ocean conditions would feel like for us and use the University of Hull’s own supercomputer VIPER to take a look at the smell molecules in today’s and future ocean conditions.
