Climate Change May Impact Vital Ocean Chemical Cycles


Researchers from the U.K.’s University of East Anglia showed that warming ocean temperatures impacted chemical cycles in plankton – free-floating organisms that play an important role in the ocean’s carbon cycle by removing half of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and storing it underwater.

“It also creates enough oxygen for every other breath we take, and forms the base of the food chain for fisheries so it is incredibly important for food security,” lead researcher Dr. Thomas Mock, added.
