Long-term emissions of carbon dioxide by the world's automobiles, power plants and industries could sharply increase …
along with the Tasman Sea, which show changes in acidification levels. "These are significant research outcomes for Australia as carbon emissions rise," Dr Lenton said. "The next step is to correlate past, present and likely future …

The report released Wednesday updates a strategic plan launched five years ago to address rising acidity levels in the ocean that threatens shellfish and other marine life. The report says new research is shedding light into the sources, …
The other (RCP8.5) reflects the current trajectory of business-as-usual CO2 emissions. Ocean acidification from CO2 blamed for world's worst mass extinction Rising acidity of oceans a major threat to coral reefs The study, published …

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 …

What is certain is that subsidence-driven relative sea level rise will slowly continue independent of global warming that may be caused by the combustion of fossil fuels. William D. Balgord, Ph.D., heads Environmental & Resources Technology, …
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, …
Highly acidic ocean water, it turned out, was dissolving the microscopic oysters. Part of the acid blast came from naturally occurring ... In the meantime, however, global carbon emissions are rapidly rising, and the planet is on track …
So the excess urea, ammonium and phosphatic fertilisers in the soil particles enter the sea with the rising wind. So, all these pollutants are decreasing the pH balance while acidifying the water. This pH rate decreases and high …
The ocean naturally absorbs carbon dioxide from the air. And since man-made carbon emissions are rising because of burning fossil fuels, the world's waters are taking in a lot more carbon dioxide. This influx of carbon lowers the pH of …
