The new model predicts ocean acidification 5 years in advance. It will allow you to take action in advance against the food crisis.
Researchers at the University of Colorado have developed a method that will allow scientists to accurately predict the acidity of the ocean up to five years in advance. This will allow businesses and governments to adapt to changing conditions and improve economic and food security over the next decades.
Previous models could predict the acidity of the ocean for several months, but this is the first study to prove the ability to predict the variability of ocean acidity several years in advance.
“”We took the climate model and used it as if it were a weather forecast. But it includes long-term forecasts for ocean chemistry – an innovative thing that we could not imagine a few years ago”, said Riley Brady, lead author of the study.
The model will also take into account real chemical indicators of water and biological diversity in water. Forecasting future environmental conditions for five years ahead is fundamentally important because this information can be used in several areas at once – from fisheries to politics.
