Oceans cover 71% of the world and are the basis of all life. Although the intake of carbon dioxide into marine ecosystems is a natural process, scientists are observing significant impacts of too much carbon dioxide entering this system. As ocean temperatures rise along with global temperatures, plants and animals struggle to adapt to higher temperatures. Increased amounts of carbon dioxide entering an aquatic system leads to an increased rate of ocean acidification.
These activities will explore climate impacts to our oceans.
