MERT Partners with East Coast and Great Lakes National Marine Sanctuaries to Identify Climate Science Needs During Virtual Focus Group 23 September 2020

MERT Partners with East Coast and Great Lakes National Marine Sanctuaries to Identify Climate Science Needs During Virtual Focus Group

Participants identified rising ocean temperatures; ocean acidification and carbonate dynamics; runoff and land/sea interactions; the impacts of climate variability and change on deep water ecosystems; extreme events; and the ability to predict and project these changes at temporal and spatial scales meaningful to sanctuaries as the most pressing needs.

Ocean heatwaves dramatically shift habitats 5 August 2020

Ocean heatwaves dramatically shift habitats

“Thermal displacement” reflects how far species must go to follow preferred temperatures

Marine heatwaves across the world’s oceans can displace habitat for sea turtles, whales, and other marine life by 10s to thousands of kilometers. They dramatically shift these animals' preferred temperatures in a fraction of the time that climate change is expected to do the same, new research funded by NOAA's Climate Program Office shows.
