Dive into the video series Stay Curious, which offers down-to-earth explanations of complex science, as well as portraits and talks with the Carlsberg Foundation's top researchers.
STAY CURIOUS: The composition of plankton in the oceans is changing as a consequence of global warming. Professor Thomas Kiørboe examines eco-systems and live organisms in the ocean, which generally move towards the poles to remain in the temperatures in which they are used to exist.
STAY CURIOUS: The organisms which are the topic of Thomas Kiørboe’s research, have become smaller and smaller. He became fascinated by the beauty of plankton and has learned that the key is asking the right questions– and then to work towards being able to answer them.
STAY CURIOUS: Eco-systems are enormous, and, at the same time, very complex. The ocean’s ability to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere has a tremendous impact on our climate. Plankton transports carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to the depths of the ocean, but the composition of plankton in the oceans is changing as a consequence of global warming
