The ocean and the atmosphere are interlinked and interrelated. So, any policy regarding future climate change moderation and adjustment cannot be implemented without giving due respect to both these components. Climate change has a huge impact on the world’s seas and oceans. The oceans have warmed in the course of the last 50 years and the upper layers of the ocean have been the most affected parts. The ocean heat content usually decides the ocean surface temperature as well as the ocean levels. Flooding has become more common along the coasts and oceans are becoming more and more acidic as the amount of dissolved carbon dioxide in the oceans increases.
