Current and predicted climate change impacts on Britain’s marine environment

August 1st, 2010 by Marine Climate Change Impacts Partnership

On 15 July 2010 The Marine Climate Change Impacts Partnership (MCCIP) published its latest annual report on marine climate change impacts in the seas around the British Isles.

Almost 100 scientists from 40 leading UK science organisations have contributed to this peer-reviewed report, which covers 30 marine and coastal topics. The report includes a new regional seas climate change impacts map, which highlight important differences in climate change impacts across UK regional seas and the report also takes a first look at how the UKCP09 climate projections can aid our understanding of future marine climate change impacts, and for the first time covers air-sea carbon exchanges, deep sea habitats, waterbirds and human health.

The 12 page summary report shows what is already happening to our sea as a consequence of climate change and also predicts what might happen in the future.
