How will global warming affect the oceans?

    Oceans sink in carbon dioxide, taking too much would leave most of them in the atmosphere. Global warming help oceans increases CO2 at a high rate too. The oceans absorbe extra heat from the atmosphere and it gives off large effects like, ocean circulation. It rasies the sea level in a thermal expansive and 90% of global warming goes back into the ocean.

    Global warming affects the oceans in numerous ways. For one, ocean temperatures are rising. From 1955 to 1998, the oceans warmed up by 0.06 degrees Fahrenheit, and while the number may seem ineffective, the amount of energy is actually equivalent to detonating 100 million Hiroshima sized atom bombs. Global warming also melts ice caps and glaciers, which ultimately cause a rise in the sea level and changing climate patterns. Additionally, global warming also threatens marine life. Some sea organisms are forced to migrate, as they cannot handle the rising temperatures. Others may die from lack of food or inability to migrate quickly enough. Carbon dioxide, a primary contributor or global warming, also affects oceans by altering their chemistry through acidification.
