Great opportunity to submit a manuscript to an important research topic: “Facing Marine Deoxygenation”. As global temperature trends continue to rise many marine regions are experiencing a slow decrease in dissolved oxygen. This has been attributed to the direct effect of warming on oxygen solubility and indirect climatic and oceanografic feedbacks not yet well understood. This research topic invites the community to address the complex interactions that lead to past, present and future changes of deoxygenation, significantly exacerbated by anthropogenic pressure.
