An increase in the average temperature of the water affects its chemical composition, and has a harmful effect on the entire marine life.
Climate scientists have warned of the catastrophic state of the planet’s oceans. According to their calculations, due to global warming there is an unprecedented increase in the average water temperature. Experts say this has an adverse effect on marine life in general.
The changing microclimate of the oceans is causing the acidification of water due to the absorption of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, rising sea levels, retreating ice sheets, and the loss of oxygen by water, according to the Journal of Operational Oceanography.
Scientists are calling for urgent action and long-term monitoring of the oceans. Since human life depends to a large extent on the biological resources of the ocean, climate change may cause irreparable damage.
