    Ocean ecosystems constitute more than 70% of the Earth’s surface area, and these massive watery habitats are home to some of the smallest organisms on the planet. These abundant microscopic organisms influence climate through the production and consumption of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2). Since 1988, the Hawaii Ocean Time-series (HOT) program has studied the open ocean waters of the subtropical North Pacific Ocean, one of Earth’s largest ecosystems. More than 25 years of monthly HOT program observations have yielded numerous discoveries on the importance of microorganisms in sustaining Earth’s habitability, including the role these organisms play in the production of oxygen and consumption of CO2 through photosynthesis. HOT measurements also highlight steady increases in ocean CO2 concentrations and seawater acidity in response to human-derived atmospheric CO2. Such time series observations are necessary for helping to build understanding of how changes in Earth’s climate are influencing marine life.

                      There are too many applicants named Johnny Depp in a skit performed by four of our first-year medical students, including Class President Leimomi Kanagusuku in a spot-on impression of Jack Sparrow. The others are the Mad Hatter, Edward Scissorhands and the owner of the Chocolate Factory. Click PIRATES AND SIREN SONG. In the spirit of Halloween, they dressed up and performed skits, transforming the Medical Education buildingʻs lobby into their very own stage. Our MD students volunteering at homeless shelters around O’ahu always make the Trick-or-Treat season special for the keiki at those facilities. That’s why they put their heart & soul into their Halloween Costumes, to thill the children later at Halloween-Themed Carnivals they host at the shelters, in addition to offering free medical care at shelters three times a week.
