Deep Ocean Waters

As the ocean surface warms, the heat penetrates deeper into the ocean. It is estimated that around 1/3 of all the heat absorbed by the ocean is passed on to the deeper layers, below 700 m[1]. This threatens entire ocean ecosystems, which reside at specific ocean layers. Even 1 °C of change can disrupt the whole ecosystem of an ocean layer.
