Deoxygenation (Ocean)

Term desciption here.

The Global Ocean Oxygen Network (GO2NE) is a IOC working group created in 2016 to help Member States address growing concerns about declining oxygen levels in the global ocean. Currently, the members of the core working group represent 21 institutions in 11 countries. In January 2018, this Network published a paper in Science that showed the amount of water in the open ocean with zero oxygen has gone up more than fourfold in the past 50 years. In coastal water bodies, including estuaries and seas, low-oxygen sites have increased more than 10-fold since 1950.
