Each year the oceans, produce half of our oxygen. They represent nearly one half of the productivity of the planet. And they are threatened.

We know that, by producing ever increasing amounts of CO2, man is turning the climate upside down. Since very recently, we also know that the excess of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere modifies the chemistry of the oceans. Oceans are getting more acid. Their acidification leads us on an uncertain journey about which the scientific community is worried.


Debate with :

  • Frédéric Gazeau, CNRS researcher at the UPMC Oceanography Laboratory at Villefranche-sur-mer, member of the EPOCA project
