Vulnerability to climate change in the ocean


Social vulnerability to projected climate change in the ocean

Raw data for figure 6 of the Mora et al. paper.



Exposure: we defined low-, medium-, and high-exposure to ocean biogeochemical change, if the cumulative change in all climate variables analysed in the countries Exclusive Economic zone was smaller than 1.3, between 1.3 and 2.6 and larger than 2.6

Wealth: we defined low-, medium-, and high-income countries depending on whether annual per capita GDP was smaller than US$4,000, between US$4,000 and US$12,000 and larger than US$12,000

Dependency: we defined countries of low, medium, and high dependency depending on whether the fraction of marine revenues to country GDP, marine food consumption to national meat consumption, and marine jobs to country working force, was smaller than 33%, between 33% and 66% and over 66%, respectively.
