A Year of Research In the Arctic and Antarctic

Led by Dr. Paty Matrai

Microbes thrive everywhere, even in harsh and uninviting polar regions. In a single 12-month period, Dr. Paty Matrai’s research team traveled to both the Western Antarctic Peninsula and the North Pole to study interactions between ocean bacteria and phytoplankton. In both places, their goal was to understand how these interactions effect the important gases and aerosols that contribute to cloud formation. Join Dr. Matrai to discuss how marine microbes shape clouds, which help control the temperature of our planet.

About Café Sci

Bigelow Laboratory’s Café Sci is a fun, free way for you to engage with ocean researchers on critical issues and groundbreaking science. Pick a chair, grab a drink, and let’s talk about the mysteries, challenges, and opportunities of the sea.

We’re looking forward to our 2019 Café Sci series, which is again being made possible through sponsorship by HM Payson. Each event will be held from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences. We hope to see you there, as well as at our annual open house on Friday, July 19.

Seating is limited at this popular summer series. Please register today!
