Monthly Ocean Science Roundup – February 2020

Date: 29th February 2020

This issue explores:

  • Climatic and local stressor interactions threaten tropical forests and coral reefs
  • Deep-reaching acceleration of global mean ocean circulation over the past two decades
  • Climate change mitigation and nature conservation both require higher protection area targets

Welcome to the February 2020 issue of the OneOcean Mailout. This month, we’re bringing you three recent publications around topics such as coral reefs, ocean currents and circulation, and climate change mitigation and nature conservation.

This month (March 23- April 3), is the fourth and final scheduled UN negotiating session towards the creation of a new treaty to protect the biodiversity of the High Seas. This is not only the first global treaty process related to the ocean within the past two decades, but is also the most significant opportunity we have to protect our ocean and planet. You can find out more at and by following #OneOceanOnePlanet #HighSeas.
