LOOKING AT THE OCEAN THROUGH THE EYES OF SEALS

The ocean covers more than 70% of the surface of the Earth, and is central to such
fundamental aspects as Earth life or the regulation of climate. The ocean is vast and
diverse, set in motion by the combined action of winds, gravity and the moon attraction.
To study the ocean, it is a necessity to observe its physical properties varying both in
space and in time. In particular, a detailed monitoring of temperature and salinity is
required. During this presentation, I will give an introduction on the physical ocean,
how it moves, how it changes and why it is important for the climate. I will also explain
how the ocean is monitored today, with an emphasis on a recent work where
instruments are attached on seals to obtain unique data in the Polar regions.

HAVETS STRÖMMAR OCH VÅGOR PÅ TREKVART

De enorma krafter som finns i haven och de stora oceanerna kan vara både skrämmande
och fascinerande. Men hur fungerar det egentligen? Varför finns Golfströmmen?
Vad är så kallade monstervågor? Finns det virvelströmmar? Varför syns inte tsunamis
på öppet hav?
I den här föreläsningen gör vi en snabbvisit i oceanografins värld och lär oss om
havens strömmar och vågor; hur de uppkommer och vilken roll de spelar för människan,
jordens ekosystem och klimat.
