Monitoring ocean change in the 21st century

Time series data sets, which contain measurements repeated over a span of decades, yield important insights into our oceans’ vital signs. Ocean temperature and chemistry changes strongly influence the well-being of organisms and the composition of marine food webs. Since the preindustrial era, the oceans have absorbed at least one fourth of the carbon dioxide […]
