The ocean provides critical life support for humans—our mild climate, much of the air we breathe, and food—but the ocean’s health is taking a hit. The ocean faces a rising tide of threats, but perhaps none more urgent than climate change.

We’ve been fortunate that the ocean has buffered our planet from the worst of climate change, but that’s come at a high cost. Increasing temperatures, ocean acidification, decreasing oxygen, and rising sea levels are some of the most significant impacts on marine ecosystems.

All life on Earth depends on a healthy and productive ocean. MBARI scientists and engineers collaborate to develop and build innovative technologies to monitor ocean health and track changes in marine environments. Our research has contributed to raising public awareness about the health and future of the ocean.

These MBARI teams and projects are tackling issues related to ocean health and how marine life responds to climate change, pollution, and other threats.
