A team of researchers from the U.K., China, and Italy has found evidence that suggests oxygen depletion in the world’s oceans led to the end-Triassic mass extinction. In their paper published in the …
Warm water holds less oxygen than does cool water. In addition, fish experience a faster metabolic rate as water temperature increases, therefore their requirement for oxygen increases.
As the impact of global warming is growing, many things around us have started to change. The ocean is also starting to lose oxygen rapidly. Furthermore, oxygen depletion in the ocean could mean that a lot of marine life in the ocean is being jeopardized.
