This meeting discussed the less obvious but important indirect impacts of climate change on the oceans. Increased stratification affects ocean circulation and ventilation, and leads to reduced upwelling and deep water formation. This reduces oxygenation through (still uncertain) interactions with biological production and remineralisation, with potential socio-economic consequences on fisheries and ecosystems.
