Ocean acidification, caused by the addition of huge amounts of carbon dioxide to the marine environment, is a problem that has come to the fore relatively recently. Jason Hall-Spencer, Professor of Marine Biology at Plymouth University, places it within the context of the myriad other threats that face the world’s oceans.

Earth’s oceans are a carbon sink, which is a place where carbon is stored long term. Oceans absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. It reacts with seawater, creating carbonic acid, which in turn lowers the pH of the ocean. This phenomena is known as ocean acidification. It will only get worse as we release more ... Read more

The current rate of change in ocean pH is roughly 50 times faster than known historical rates of change and scientists estimate that the current rate of change in ocean pH has not likely occurred on the planet for the past 100 million years. Increasing ocean acidity decreases the ability of clam and oyster shells and other calcium carbonate structures, such as coral skeletons,
