PML's Dr Carol Turley is one of the experts involved in the World Bank's first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on climate change, talking about the different aspects of ocean acidification and what the scientific community is doing about it.

MOOC will be launched in January 2014 and presents recent scientific evidence as well as some of the opportunities for urgent action on climate change. It is being offered in two tracks: (1) General Public and (2) Policy Makers and Practitioners. The course runs for 4 weeks and is free of charge. Access to the material will be available for approximately 6 months after the course ends.
