Abstract

Objective of this research paper is to study the carbon dioxide emission emitted from oil and gas activity which will affect the rising of sea level. This thesis focuses on the rising of sea level in Malaysia and the impact of global mean sea level rise. There are two objectives that govern the flow of this research which, to determine amount of emitted carbon dioxide from oil refinery. Then specific heat capacity equation is used to determine the relationship of the emitted carbon dioxide to the rising of sea level and also coastal flooding which will impact the coastal community. One of the problem of dissolved carbon dioxide in the ocean is that as sea level rise, the carbon sink of the ocean will decrease, therefore resulting in the reduction of carbon uptake in the ocean. Another factor that affects the ocean is as dissolved carbon dioxide in the ocean increases, the process of ocean acidification also increases where carbon dioxide dissolved in the ocean produces carbonic acids where the pH of the ocean is reduced and also causing the reduction of carbonate ions where shelled marine creatures such as phytoplankton, and pteropods struggles to build their exoskeleton as they require calcium carbonate which ocean acidification reduces the carbonate ion in the sea
