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 ...
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 disrupt …
Climate change’s oft ignored twin, ocean acidification, is usually thought of as a biological rather than a climatic problem. They’re seen as parallel (carbon dioxide emissions are a cause of each) but separate (the effects of ocean acidification …
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 …
These purposeful manipulation experiments are important tools for moving research out of artificial lab conditions into the ocean. Preliminary results from ocean acidification experiments ... Funding for NOVA Next is provided by the Eleanor & …

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 climate …
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 exactly …
Ocean acidification could alter the behavior of fish and make them more anxious, a new study says. The finding came in an experiment by researchers interested in the neurological effects of the shift in the chemistry of seawater that is …
