Increased carbon emissions have warmed and acidified oceans and caused shifts in ocean current systems, threatening marine ecosystems and the people connected to them. The North Pacific Ocean in particular is expected to experience some of the largest changes in ocean conditions by 2100. Until now, little was known about how coastal processes—those oceanic processes that occur near the coast—can modify these projections.
Increased carbon emissions are rapidly acidifying our oceans
Ocean acidification threatens our marine ecosystems and the people connected to them. We connect research to decision makers to advance ocean acidification science, strategies and policies to restore the health of our oceans.About WOAC
