We'll talking with Dr. Don Chambers, professor of physical oceanography in the College of Marine Science at the University of South Florida in Tampa. Dr. Chambers uses satellites to track and understand climate change’s impact on sea levels. He was in town for two talks about the latest on climate science and sea level rise. One as part of Florida Gulf Coast University’s Provost Lecture Series, and the other for Naples Discussion Group.
