Several incidents of marine heatwaves have occurred off the coast of California in recent years. These unusually warm waters can have a dramatic impact on local fisheries.

Researchers and the communications team at the Center assisted Scripps Oceanography in developing Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) resources for pressing climate questions. The documents are part of Scripps Oceanography’s Climate Change Resources, and aim to increase awareness on how climate change will affect both planet and people.

The Center contributed to the fact sheets on marine heatwaves and ocean acidification. To learn more the impacts of climate change, view the Climate Change Answers page here.

Fact sheets include:
