Tipping points of marine phytoplankton to multiple environmental stressors

Nature Climate Change, Published online: 10 October 2022; doi:10.1038/s41558-022-01489-0

The authors establish machine learning models to identify multifactor tipping points of global marine phytoplankton. They show that temperature and carbon dioxide dominate risks, and project crossing tipping points in tropical area production (50%) and resistance (41%) by 2100 under high emissions.
