The overall objective of the GESAMP Working Group: “Climate Change Impacts on Contaminants in the Ocean” will be to get a better understanding of the role the major stressors of climate change, such as ocean warming and stratification, change in the chemical composition of seawater, ocean acidification, on the biogeochemical cycling of trace elements as well as the distribution and transport of organic contaminants. In particular, the WG will aim to assess the potential impact of changes in circulation and sea-level rise, as well as frequency and intensity of extreme events on the sources and transport of radionuclides in the ocean.
