Asymmetrical changes in ocean circulation and the marine carbon cycle could account for different degrees of ocean acidification between the Pacific and Atlantic.
Ocean acidification “provides a case study of a way that we can drive forward bipartisan action on an environmental issue,” says an Ocean Conservancy scientist.
With coastal oceans around the world changing from the effects of urbanization, rising carbon dioxide levels, and climate warming, recent work begins to find new land-sea linkages.
Scientists studying Earth's ancient oceans use a new method to measure ocean acidification and its effect on extinction events.
New research evaluates the ability of coastal foliage to influence the ocean's pH.
Researchers unexpectedly discovered that tiny shoreline ecosystems act as miniature laboratories in which ocean acidification and its effects play out nightly.
New research shows that increased levels of carbon dioxide in the oceans cause changes that alter key nutrients essential to the reproduction of animals low on the food web.
The rate of ocean acidification in coral reefs outpaces the rise in carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere.
