Study: Climate Change Is Altering The Color Of The Ocean

This article discusses how climate change is altering the color of the ocean.

Climate change is already having profound effects on our planet, and here’s one more: It’s changing the color of the oceans, with the blues getting bluer and the greens getting greener.

A new study from researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology finds that more than half of the world’s oceans will shift color by the year 2100, due to changes in the types and location of phytoplankton.

The study, published Monday in the journal Nature Communications, offers a new way to predict these changes, a model which could serve as an early warning signal for ocean health.
