Over half of the world’s oceans are changing color, possibly due to global warming

  • More than 56% of the global oceans have experienced significant color shifts over the past two decades, becoming greener, although the exact reason remains unclear.
  • The ocean’s greening might indicate an increase in phytoplankton, which might disrupt marine food chains, according to a research study published in the journal Nature.
  • Scientists will continue to study the cause of these color changes to predict the ocean’s state under a warming planet.
