Ocean-based climate actions

The ocean covers more than 70 per cent of our planet, has a significant impact on our climate and atmosphere, and is critical to life on Earth. Yet, it is threatened by climate change. But the ocean could be an essential piece of the solution to global climate change.

This Collection aims to showcase primary research on ocean-based solutions and geoengineering approaches in the fight against climate disruption by promoting offshore renewable energy, CO2 sequestration by the ocean, conservation and restoration of coastal and marine ecosystems, solar radiation management, mitigation of hurricane damage in coastal regions, coastal resiliency and adaptation, preservation of coral reefs from bleaching, and the development and implementation of strategies to improve marine aquaculture and fisheries productivity. We also encourage submissions that assess the environmental impact and potential adverse effects of these actions.

  1. Palak Mahajan says:

    In my opinion our efforts to fight climate change, ocean-based climate actions a top priority. This will not only safeguard the ocean and its ecosystems but also broader efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions and create a more sustainable future. It will lessen the effects of climate change by preserving carbon sinks.

  2. Ru Wong says:

    I agree with Palak. I also think that if we do not try to fight climate change and prevent the world’s average temperature from exceeding the 1.5 degrees celsius benchmark, the rising sea levels will not only affect humans but also the wildlife and their ecosystems. More should be done by governments and people in power to educate the public. But more importantly, our actions should align with our words so that it is not just “all talk and no action”.

    The climate change is impacting a lot the oceans such as ice-melting, sea-level rise, marine heatwaves, and ocean acidification. Thus, the governements and people should wake up and fight effectively climate change !!
