Our common future ocean in the Earth system – quantifying coupled cycles of carbon, oxygen, and nutrients for determining and achieving safe operating spaces with respect to tipping points

Project description

An integrative projection model towards ocean sustainability

The human induced drivers of climate change - including those that change the chemistry of the oceans - may lead to the crossing of tipping points in the ocean environment with adverse effects on marine organisms and the Earth system. These tipping points and the respective subsystems affected by them have so far been considered separately which ultimately makes timely and effective interventions difficult. Instead, the COMFORT project offers an integrative approach, examining in parallel factors contributing to tipping points in the key areas of marine carbon, oxygen, and nutrient cycles as well as marine ecosystems. COMFORT brings together experts from Earth system science, oceanography, fisheries science and ecology. The project consortium will combine data analysis and predictive models to create projections of the impact of human drivers including on ocean systems, allowing policymakers and stakeholders to intervene more effectively with mitigating measures.
