Climate change affects marine ecosystems (and as a consequence, fishery).
On Sky Tg24, Prof. Nadia Pinardi, oceanographer at the CMCC Foundation, tells about climate change impacts on the ocean. The trends observed have been caused primarily by greenhouse gas emissions from human activities and will continue to affect the Earth for years.
“The marine ecosystem”, Pinardi explained, “continues to change due to human-caused greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere in the last hundred years. The effects of global warming on the ocean will continue for decades.
Associate Professor of Physical Oceanography at University of Bologna, member of the Strategic Council of the CMCC Foundation where she established the Ocean-Lab, the laboratory for advanced research in the field of operational oceanography, Prof. Nadia Pinardi – who holds a PhD in Applied Physics (Physical Oceanography) from Harvard University, Cambridge, U.S.A. – has coordinated the development of operational oceanography in the Mediterranean area in the framework of the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) strategy, and she’s co-president of JCOMM, the Joint WMO and IOC Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology.
