5 ways that climate change affects the ocean

Jun 07 2018Climate change poses a dual threat for sea levels For one when land-based polar ice melts it finds its way to the sea (Ice that forms in polar seas on the other hand doesn't affect sea levels when it melts ) Second when water warms it expands to take up more space — a major yet unheralded cause of sea-level rise

How CO2

Summary Widely distributed organic-rich shales are being considered as one of the important carbon-storage targets owing to three differentiators compared with conventional reservoirs and saline aquifers (1) trapping of a significant amount of carbon dioxide (CO 2) permanently (2) kerogen-rich shale's higher affinity of CO 2 and (3) existing well and pipeline infrastructure especially

Deep Sea Mining

Deep sea mining is a relatively new mineral retrieval process that takes place on the ocean floor Ocean mining sites are usually around large areas of polymetallic nodules or active and extinct hydrothermal vents at about 1 400-3 700 m below the ocean's surface The vents create sulfide deposits which contain valuable metals such as silver gold copper manganese cobalt and zinc
