Ocean Acidification- "The name given to the ongoing decrease in the pH of the Earth's oceans, caused by the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere." Pictured here is the before and after of Ocean Acidification in the Florida Keys

Great cartoon about Ocean Acidification; This website is loaded with charming, funny cartoons relevant to life science.

The Science of Ocean Acidification

What is the 'other carbon dioxide problem'? How are humans driving changes in the chemistry of the ocean, and what might this mean for marine ecosystems in the future?

Seawater carbonate chemistry

When carbon dioxide dissolves in ocean water, a process begins that uses up carbonate molecules. So more carbon dioxide means less carbonates for shell building by swimming snails and other creatures.

Scientists now have nearly a decade's worth of data showing the cycle of plant life in the Earth's oceans. From space, the "ocean color" satellites measure the ocean's biology as plant productivity.

Ocean Acidification: The Climate Change Buffer, but Another Environmental Disaster in the Making

Speaking at International Symposium on the in a World late last month in Monterey, California, Dr Daniela Schmidt, a geologist from the University of Bristol, warned that current rates of ocean acidification are unparalleled in Earth history.
