The report said that areas with more floating rubbish generally had more microplastic fragments on the seafloor.
These findings have profound and troubling implications which include potentially driving more "intense, destructive hurricanes" as ocean surfaces warm.
The researchers part of the study calculated a time history of ocean-atmosphere CO2 fluxes (or movement) from 1992 to 2018.
Increased nutrients in the sea lead to excessive growth of plants, which ultimately leads to less oxygen as the plants die and decompose in a process known as eutrophication.
Conserving at least a third of the planet’s land and oceans could prevent mass extinctions and allow vital habitats to be restored.
Europa has an ocean hidden beneath a thick shell of ice and has long has been viewed as a potential habitat for life, alongside Mars and Saturn’s moon Enceladus.
If proven, the biotic pump theory could explain why the remote interiors of forested continents receive as much rain as the coasts.
Rate of climate change in deep waters of the ocean could be to be seven times faster by 2050 even if we reduce emissions
The results also showed that no amount of carbon emission reduction can reverse the rate of change that has already taken place.
Scientists drill in Antarctica's seafloor to find that it was once a swampy rainforest, teeming with life
During the warmest months, average temperatures was about 20-25 Celsius whereas now it is around minus 40 Celsius.
In the decades since Gray’s Reef was developed, many stringently protected zones have popped up all over the world.
The larger the animal, lower the heart rate as it minimizes the heart's work while distributing blood in the body.

Marine fish have kidneys, which pump excess salt into their pee so they can get it out of their bodies.
The difference between 1.5°C and 2°C of heating is important for the poles, which warms faster than the global average.
Not convinced climate action is urgent? Here's what happens to Earth over 1.5 degrees Celsius of global heating
At 1.5 degrees Celsius of warming, we could expect to lose between 70 and 90 percent of our coral reefs.
The tropics in general and India must focus on the lack of long-term sustained Indian and Pacific ocean observations.
Warming oceans, melting glaciers have been 'taking the heat' from climate change for decades: IPCC Report
Experts highlighted that countries will either have to pay the cost of climate-related damages now, or invest in climate adaptation for the future.
IPCC Oceans and Cryosphere Report: Melting glaciers and natural disasters in Himalayas to become more frequent
Mitigating climate change and adapting to its effect in high mountains won't be easy, but it is the need of the hour.
IPCC Special Report on Oceans and Cryosphere releasing today: What to expect from UN's latest climate change assessment
The report looks at the effects of climate change on oceans and has been written by 104 scientists from all over the world.
