Climate Change and the Oceans investigates the effects of climate change on the ocean environment and its implications for maritime activities, both globally and within the Asia Pacific region.

This detailed work draws together informed opinion from a range of disciplines to examine the impacts of climate change on marine and coastal areas and review legal and policy responses to the rapidly changing ocean environment. Issues including the effects on fisheries and marine biodiversity in the Asia Pacific region, maritime security, global shipping, marine jurisdiction and marine geo-engineering are also explored.

Examining the multiple impacts of climate change on the oceans and ocean based solutions to mitigate the adverse impacts of climate change, this thought-provoking book will prove invaluable to academics, researchers and students in the fields of law, environment, ecology and political science. Oceans and marine environmental policymakers will also find this to be an essential resource.
‘Climate Change and the Oceans: considers the effects of climate change on the oceans and its wider-ranging impact on maritime activities with a special focus on the Asia Pacific region and is a top pick gathering research and opinions from a wide range of disciplines. . . Many focuses on climate change don’t consider political impacts in depth: this book includes all such concerns and is a solid starting point for taking environmental changes and relating them to human impact and strategy changes.’
