Rapid progress in understanding the planet’s climate system has enabled projections of alternative scenarios on current and future conditions of socio-ecological marine systems throughout the world. These advances build on a growing body of science – from studies on the adaptive capacity of single species or human communities to new modeling techniques that evaluate climate-driven changes, interactions, and feedbacks within socio-ecological systems under alternative future scenarios.
