Changes in temperature, more temperature extremes, acidification of the water, changes in storm frequency and sea-level rise — all are at different scales — but …
Rising acidity doesn't just imperil the West Coast's $110 ... to discuss their findings on oceans in a "high-C02 world." The full brunt of ocean acidification won't hit for decades. But scientists say the only sure way to avoid the worst is to ...
Ocean acidification, a result of excess carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, can disrupt plankton blooms, according to new research published in Nature Geosciences. It’s a troubling finding, scientists say, because those blooms are helping …

Normally, black turban snails (top) escape predation by sea stars by crawling out of tide pools (Credit: Gabriel Ng, UC Davis) The rising tide (no pun intended) of acid in the Earth's oceans could cause a major disruption in the delicate …
A growing base of scientific evidence has shown that the absorption of human-produced carbon dioxide into the world’s oceans is causing surface waters to decline in pH, causing a rise in acidity. This ocean acidification is known to …
If that’s the case, understanding the details could help us predict how these phytoplankton will respond to ocean acidification – global warming’s oft-overlooked (but equally ugly) twin. The rising concentration of carbon dioxide in …
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 …
A new research study combining marine physiology, neuroscience, pharmacology, and behavioral psychology has revealed a surprising outcome from increases of carbon dioxide uptake in the oceans: anxious fish. Scientists have shown for …
The temperature and acidity in the Mediterranean Sea are rising, and researchers are worried it will lead to extinction of native species. Villefranche-sur-Mer oceanographic laboratory in the south of France released a study that said the …
The third in a series. To see the first two parts, click here and here. Many of the projected effects of climate change on the world's oceans are already visible, such as melting polar ice caps and rising sea levels. But invisible changes may be …
