    The National Ocean Strategy - | 12 The ocean is also a development vector, through the numerous and diverse uses and activities it supports, such as marine transport, tourism, shipbuilding and repair, or recreational boating, among other traditional or emerging activities. The National Ocean Service (NOS) translates science, tools, and services into action, to address threats to coastal areas such as climate change, population growth, port congestion, and contaminants in the environment, all working towards healthy coasts and healthy economies.

      Responses to the problem of marine plastic pollution will need to involve and link state and non-state actors, business, and civil society, looking to integrated solutions that move away from Cited by:   Marine pollution is a growing problem in today’s world. Our ocean is being flooded with two main types of pollution: chemicals and trash. Chemical contamination, or nutrient pollution, is concerning for health, environmental, and economic reasons. This type of pollution occurs when human activities, notably the use of fertilizer on farms, lead to the runoff of chemicals into waterways that.

Why is the Ocean so important. The Ocean is the heart of the planet. Water covers more than two-thirds of the Earth’s surface. Sea plants, like Posidonia, produce 70% of the oxygen we breathe (1), and the deep waters are home to wildlife and some of the biggest creatures on earth.

It provides us with food, jobs, life, entertainment, and sailing. Enjoy same store prices at National Book Store Online.

Microplastics are the multi-colored pieces of plastic that can be found in a handful of sand on the beach or in the ocean. Scientists are still investigating the impact of microplastics on our ocean and marine life. The ocean provides us with everything we need: food, oxygen, inspiration and jobs.

It also regulates the climate. Despite its vital importance, we are currently treating our ocean like an enormous dump. A whole garbage truck’s worth of plastic ends up in the ocean every minute, and we are way overdue in doing something about the problem.

The ocean absorbs as much as one third of the CO2 emitted worldwide, which keeps us cooler but makes the ocean surface much more acidic. This has the effect of limiting calcium carbonate needed by coral, plankton, and other marine life that use it to build the skeletal frames and shells that protect them.

Ocean Solutions, Earth Solutions describes realistic, science-based solutions for protecting the ocean, and thus the earth. The book's 16 chapters present high-level ocean science research from the inaugural Esri® Ocean GIS Forum () at Esri headquarters in Redlands, : Dawn Wright.
