Ocean Connections: An Introduction to Rising Risks from a Warming, Changing Ocean (May 2018, 466p; 37p Summary)

This report by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature looks into the impact of climate change on the maritime environment. “The ocean is now changing more rapidly than it has for millions of years,” due to human interaction with the atmosphere and land, as well as increasing expansion of the human footprint across the ocean.  This extensive work by 80 scientists describes ocean/earth system interaction, extreme storm events, pollution, hypoxia (oxygen deprivation), acidification, human health and disease, harmful algal blooms, coral bleaching, fisheries and aquaculture, rising sea levels, ineffective governance, and ocean warming consequences and costs.
