WWF-Russia's experts presented a report on possible impact of climate change in Kamchatka in the XXI century
Researches emphasize that this is just a forecast and the reality will depend on natural fluctuations, which can either moderate or potentiate the anthropogenic impact on the climate. The ability of humankind to keep the temperature growth within the margins of 2.5°C rise will be decisive. The moderate scenario is based on this value.
Also, scientists predict that the near-surface ocean will become warmer, more acidic, and with less oxygen. There are areas of oxygen deficiency in the Global Ocean already, and one of them is in the North Pacific. The experts emphasize, however, that the deficiency there is rather moderate and the area is far off-shore Kamchatka which could not be the cause of the recent noted events in the Gulf of Avacha.
