Oceans are changing…

Summary from Science Daily:  New research finds that when westerly winds in the Antarctic Ocean strengthen during the austral summer (October to February), surface waters in the region acidify faster than can be accounted for by increases in carbon dioxide from the atmosphere alone… Read the rest of the article here: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/10/181009175643.htm Advertisements

Unexpected result: Ocean acidification can also promote shell formation… 

Marine science news update from sciencedaily.com: More carbon dioxide in the air also acidifies the oceans. It seemed to be the logical conclusion that shellfish and corals will suffer, because chalk formation becomes more difficult in more acidic seawater. But now a group of scientists discovered to their own surprise that some tiny unicellular shellfish […]

Ocean acidity to more than double by 2100…

From telegraph.co.uk… “The oceans have already acidified by 26 per cent in the past 200 years after absorbing increased levels of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and forming carbonic acid, but the process is now taking pace at a rate unprecedented in at least 300 million years. Ocean acidification threatens marine species such as corals and […]
