Submit your questions in advance HERE.

Tune in for the next Labside Chat with Carl Lamborg, associate professor of Ocean Sciences at UC Santa Cruz, on Thursday, November 12, 2020, at 11:00 AM PST. Join us to better understand how mercury plays a role in the ocean, in the air, and within all living things.

Join the conversation! Submit your questions in advance for Carl, then watch the conversation to hear the answers during the live chat. Help us put together questions such as:

  • What is mercury, and is it considered a marine contaminant?
  • How does mercury move through the ecosystem and bioaccumulate in animals?
  • Is mercury present in all ecosystems and at all ocean depths?
  • How is mercury collected from the ocean and then analyzed?

We want your questions! Submit your questions in advance HERE.

Labside Chats are offered at no charge. Please support the Seymour Center by becoming a member or making a donation today. Thank you sincerely.
