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
