The “three horsemen” of climate-linked biodiversity loss

Record-breaking ocean temperatures in the North Atlantic resulted in several intense marine heatwaves in the Northern Hemisphere last summer - but heat is only one of numerous stressors that challenge life under water. While the ocean is becoming warmer, more acidic, and less oxygenated, how can we monitor and protect the marine biodiversity we depend upon?
Our Professor Steve Widdicombe explains how these three stressors have a huge impact on biodiversity loss, and why improving ocean observation is crucial for life below water.
