The tides are crucial for sustaining climate, controlling ocean circulation patterns, and as a pump responsible for maintaining the ocean’s ability to host and evolve life. Over millions of years continents move, merge, and break up. This leads to changes in the tides and some serious consequences for life and climate. In this talk, we will go on a 1 billion year journey through Earth’s history and explore how moving continents change the tides, climate, and life.

This Lecture is sponsored by the Sêr Cymru National Research Network for Low Carbon, Energy and Environment (NRN-LCEE).
