Global change refers to the collection of environmental changes that occur on the planet as a result of human activities. In 2002, Mètode published a monograph dedicated to this topic, with an article focusing specifically on the role of oceans in global change. But oceans are so large and their influence on the atmosphere, climate, and human beings is so important that it is imperative to examine some aspects of the complex relationships between them and global change. And even more so when an important percentage of the economy of many countries depends directly on activities related to the sea. How much will sea level rise? Will any sea ice remain during the Arctic summer? How many species of corals and other marine animals will disappear? How will our releases of plastic and other waste, or drugs, or persistent pollutants affect the seas and marine organisms? Will the population of fish increase? Will it dwindle? With the help of current knowledge, this monograph will try to answer many of these questions.
This monograph on oceans and global change is open to original and review papers. Originals will be peer-reviewed by external referees and published in Catalan and Spanish in the quarterly journal Mètode and in annually in English in Mètode Science Studies Journal.
