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 …
According to chemical oceanographer Triona McGrath, the ocean has been undergoing a long negative change in pH (the acid/alkaline balance of the water) since the rise of the Industrial Revolution. Low pH means high acidity. Carbon …
The Biological Impacts of Ocean Acidification report authors say some creatures may benefit directly from the chemical changes - but even these could still be adversely affected indirectly by shifts in the whole food web. What is more, the …
That has dropped ocean pH to 8.1. The shift might seem slight, but it actually represents a 30 percent increase in acidity, because the pH scale is logarithmic. The consequences, coupled with the impacts of rising ocean temperatures, …
oceans take up about a third of rising carbon dioxide emissions. But when absorbed by sea water, the greenhouse gas triggers chemical reactions, causing the ocean to acidify. This acidification, along with global warming, will not only …
The legislation is budget-neutral and was created in collaboration with key stakeholders. Ocean acidification is a rising threat to coastal communities in Washington, according to the release. Science has shown the shells of pteropods are …
VILLEFRANCE-SUR-MER, France (Reuters) - Water temperatures in the northwestern Mediterranean are increasing much faster than global averages, threatening the survival of several species, French researchers said. Weekly water …
