Ocean changes to come

Key messages

  • Oceans are key to the climate system’s carbon, heat and freshwater cycles.
  • Oceans are changing, and further physical, chemical and biological changes are projected for Australian waters this century.
  • Ocean warming, acidification, deoxygenation and sea-level rise have important implications for marine ecosystems and the ocean services on which humans depend.
  • Climate models are essential tools for exploring mitigation options and integrating climate predictions with human systems such as agriculture and fisheries.
