Impacts of marine climate change demonstrated by decade of scientific collaboration

NOC scientists have contributed to a major new publication by the UK Marine Climate Change Impacts Partnership (MCCIP), which demonstrates the effects climate change is having on UK seas and coastlines.

Seafloor communities may have it worse under climate change

New findings from researchers at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) indicate that seafloor communities will be more impacted by climate change the deeper they are in the ocean.

Global climatic change prompts marine life to go on the move

How global climate change will alter the ocean and ecosystems at the heart of global food security over the 21st century has been highlighted by a trio of ground-breaking research papers.

The Ocean’s future is stressful

A NOC-led study, published in Nature Communications, finds that with just 15 more years of current emissions, over half of the world’s ocean will be exposed to more than one source of stress, affecting everything from the tiniest plants to the mightiest whales. By 2050, that figure rises to around 86% of the ocean.
