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.
