Humans also affect the oceanic carbon cycle.  Current trends in climate change lead to higher ocean temperatures, thus modifying ecosystems    . Also, acid rain and polluted runoff from agriculture and industry change the ocean's chemical composition. Such changes can have dramatic effects on highly sensitive ecosystems such as coral reefs    , thus limiting the ocean's ability to absorb carbon from the atmosphere on a regional scale and reducing oceanic biodiversity globally.
