Impacts of climate change on ocean primary productivity
Author(s): Temkar GS, Bhatt AJ, Hari Prasad, Arti Joshi and Vagh S
Abstract: The changes in the statistics of average sea water temperature, average ocean water salinity, average sea level rise, average sea height, average water pH range etc. over the decades, years or even centuries called climate change. Human activities over land such as burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, agricultural activities etc. causes human induced climate change. Phytoplankton were the major source of primary productivity of oceans. The various reports on climate change and its impact on phytoplankton, stated that the increase in sea surface temperature and large amount of CO2 diffusion in ocean water causes some of the serious effects on primary productivity and this ultimately posed thoughtful risks to fisheries as well as human population. So in future it is becomes very much essential to take proper steps towards minimizing the human induced climate change activities, and for this purpose detailed research and awareness among the population is becomes compulsory. While reviewing present situation one can be say that, if we were not gets aware about present climate change scenario, then in future it will going to give more trouble.
