The panel, comprising 155 scientists from 26 countries and other international groups, is not the first to point to growing ocean acidity as an environmental threat. For example, a group of eminent scientists convened by The Nature …
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 …
The slow and inexorable increase in the oceansacidity ... DMS emissions might rise and help cool the Earth. More recently, thinking has shifted towards predicting a feedback in the opposite direction, because of acidification. As …
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 …
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 …
A reef fish that can't find its way home and whose erratic behaviour constantly puts it in danger might make a nice premise for a children's movie, but oceans filled with Dory's could spell disaster for their survival. Higher atmospheric carbon …
Increased acidity in the oceans, called by some the "evil twin of global warming", compounds the effect of rising temperatures. Acidification is a change in the ocean chemistry that occurs when carbon dioxide from the atmosphere …
Victoria State Government provides funding as a strategic partner of The Conversation AU. Ocean acidification – the rise in ocean acidity due to the increased absorption of carbon dioxide (CO₂) – is often thought of as consequence of …
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 …
