Blue Planet: Introduction to Oceanography

Ocean floor map showing sea levels decreasing 120 m. Sea levels are set to fall over millions of years, making the current rise blamed on climate change a brief interruption of an ancient geological trend, scientists said. "If we humans still exist in 10, 20 or 50 million years, irrespective of how ice caps are waxing and waning, the long term ... is that sea level will drop, not rise," said lead author Dietmar Muller of the University of Sydney.

Have attended online the Blue Planet lecture series. Would
love to have the remainder of the lectures available. As an
over-the-hill ecologist, I find the trends in new science
fascinating.
