it has generally been thought that the greatest risk posed by ocean acidification was the change to seawater carbon chemistry. This is because rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide reduce the concentration of seawater carbonate …
Ocean acidification is sometimes called “climate change’s ... A more acidic ocean won’t destroy all marine life in the sea, but the rise in seawater acidity of 30 percent that we have already seen is already affecting some ocean organisms.
SYDNEY (Reuters) - Rising acidification of the ocean could reduce fertilization of marine invertebrates and might eventually wipe out colonies of sea urchins, lobsters, mussels and oysters, according to a study. Scientists knew that …
IN the week of Scott Morrison’s first budget, 330 scientists in Hobart were focusing on the astonishingly rapid shift in global ocean chemistry. The fourth international conference on “the ocean in a high-CO2 world” looked at how rising carbon ...
Pacific shellfish prices are expected to rise as a result of rising ocean acidity, reports the Canadian news source the Globe and Mail. Prices for oysters, mussels and scallops have gone up by 20-30% on the last three years, and is …
When water becomes either too acidic or basic, marine organisms cannot handle the change, but if pH levels change loosely over a span of time, organisms are usually able to adapt. The only problem with that is current research …
Scientists in Australia used a unique system of coral atolls in the southern Great Barrier Reef to experiment on the …
Rising ocean acidity is now considered to be just as much of a formidable threat to the health of Earth’s environment as the atmospheric climate changes brought on by pumping out greenhouse gases. Scientists are now trying to …
The Gulf of Maine, which extends from Cape Cod to Nova Scotia, is especially vulnerable to acidification, because carbon dioxide is absorbed more easily in colder water, and much of the region’s economy relies on the sea life that is most …
OSLO, May 6 (Reuters) - The Arctic ecosystem ... in the form of rapid acidification of the ocean, according to an international study published on Monday. Acidification, blamed on the transformation of rising levels of the …
