Join us for this coral reef focused webinar in a series that aims to advance the knowledge about tipping elements, irreversibility, and abrupt changes in the Earth system. The event includes two presentations on potential tipping of coral reefs and impacts on ocean ecosystems.  

The series is a joint activity of the Analysis, Integration, and Modeling of the Earth System (AIMES) global research project of Future Earth, the Earth Commission Working Group 1 Earth and Human Systems Intercomparison Modelling Project (EHSMIP) under the Global Commons Alliance, and the Safe Landing Climates Light House Activity of World Climate Research Program (WCRP). IIASA co-hosts the scientific secretariat of Working Group 1 of the Earth Commission and is one of the organizers of these events.

The webinar includes presentations by:

  • David Obura (Founding Director of CORDIO East Africa): How close are we to coral reefs tipping?
  • Joanie Kleypas (National Center for Atmospheric Research): Can we avoid or delay the tipping point for coral reefs?
  • Q&A/ Discussion

Moderated by Albert Norström (Stockholm Resilience Centre).
