Scientists claim to have discovered the first deep ocean ‘dead zones’, which are areas of water with virtually no oxygen-in immense whirlpools in the tropical North Atlantic.
Canadian and German researchers Continue reading Scientists Find the First Deep Ocean Dead Zones
[Global] Nearly all ocean dead zones will increase by the end of the century because of climate change, according to a new Continue reading Ocean dead zones are getting worse globally due to climate change
Dead zones, or marine areas with levels of dissolved oxygen so low few things can exist, are becoming increasingly common as climate changes and soaring pollution from human populations combine to put record stress on waterways. This trend is alarming in most places, because marine life Continue reading Climate change disrupts Arabian Sea with little-known, voracious plankton
