BIO 101C PRESENTATION SUMMARY Randy Bayas Rb25493 21 November 2007 Dr. Dong-Ha Min. 14 November 2007. Oceanic oxygen and what it can tell us about climate change. Dr. Min is a chemical oceanographer at UTMSI who is currently analyzing levels of oceanic oxygen and how it relates to climate change. The experiment is done by three different types of sampling methods, 1. Shipboard sampling 7 analysis 2. Roset sampler 3. Autonomous oxygen sensors. The more popular autonomous oxygen sensors dive to set depths and record data while following ocean currents. After sufficient data has been acquired, the probe resurfaces and broadcasts the data to the institution. Dr. Min’s hypothesis is that decadal scale changes in oxygen inventories in intermediate and deep waters of the world oceans are statistically significant. The results from Dr. Min’s study show oceanic oxygen concentrations in different locations around the world. In marginal seas, treads are easy to detect and there has been an increase in water temperature while a decrease in O
