Description:
Climate change accelerates the rates of hydrologically-influenced degradation and can compound its impacts. According to CIESM, Western Mediterranean waters are experiencing a substantial warming trend (+0,2°C in last ten years), which could have a drastic impact on species adapted to more uniform temperatures, especially deeper water organisms accustomed to a near-constant temperature of 13°C.
