Negative impacts of C02 emissions for the ocean
3 July 2015
The ocean moderates anthropogenic atmospheric warming at the cost of profound alterations of its physics, chemistry, ecology, and ecosystem services. An international research initiative including the Oeschger Centre has published a paper in the renowned journal Science. The study evaluates and compares the risks of impacts on marine and coastal ecosystems and the goods and services they provide under two potential CO2 emission pathways over this century.
