One of the many consequences of rising atmospheric carbon dioxide is ocean acidification—the lowering of seawater pH as CO2 chemically reacts with dissolved ions in seawater. Scientists have found that more acidic waters are …
SEATTLE -- Rising acidity levels in the oceans pose a serious threat to shellfish and other marine life, and tackling that problem in Washington state will require reducing carbon dioxide emissions, keeping polluted runoff out of marine …
As the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere rise, the pH balance of the ocean drops to keep a C02 equilibrium. That increases acidity. It’s what will happen to all of the things in the ocean that is the big mystery. “We don’t know …
Ocean acidification caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is eating away at the shells of marine snails known as “sea butterflies”, the researchers said. © David Liittschwager Rising amounts of carbon dioxide …
The Arctic Ocean’s acidity level is rising at an alarming rate due to changes in the global carbon cycle. Scientists with the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme in Oslo, Norway are concerned about the amount of carbon dioxide …
That's bad news for a fishery facing a number of environmental stressors, including rising ocean temperatures and acidification, as well as decreased oxygen …
For those who have not been keeping up with the alarmist follies, alleged ocean acidification has joined ... apparently showing a strong correlation between rising atmospheric CO2 levels and falling oceanic pH levels, Wallace noticed that …
