Marine heatwaves (MHW) are extreme climatic events in oceanic systems that can have devastating impacts on ecosystems, causing abrupt ecological changes and socioeconomic consequences. Marine heat waves are happening more frequently, with predictions of many parts of the ocean reaching a near-permanent MHW state by the late 21st century. Some of the topics for discussion here include 1) Marine heat waves and current updates on ocean conditions around North and South Atlantic and 2) The future of marine heat waves, including efforts to understand and predict future impacts.
