Future Ocean

Future OceanThe ocean covers more than two thirds of our planet. Even so, we know more about the surface of the moon than about the depths of the seas. This, in spite of the fact that mankind's future lies in the world's seas. They will determine the climate of tomorrow across the entire globe – and are already suffering from the advance of global warming. New raw materials and energy sources can be found on the seafloor – how can we exploit them? Many marine organisms may harbour the secrets to cures for diseases – if they are still around tomorrow.
