Tomasetti, Science Teaching and Research to Inform Decisions fellow, consider accumulating scientific evidence on the harmful effects of coastal hypoxia and acidification in coastal ecosystems and suggest approaches that would address current policy shortfalls and facilitate improved protection of aquatic life.
