Times series (on ocean acidification) wins major multimedia award

A Seattle Times multimedia project about acidification of the Pacific Ocean, has won a duPont award — an honor considered the equivalent to a Pulitzer Prize. The Seattle Times was named one of the winners of the 2015 Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards for the multimedia project, “Sea Change: The Pacific’s Perilous Turn,” which illuminated […]

NOAA offers $1.4 million to help shellfish growers track ocean acidification

That National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is ponying up $1.4 million to help West Coast shellfish growers and scientists address ocean acidification. The new three-year grant will help commercial shellfish growers find ways...Show More Summary

Nitrate limitation and ocean acidification interact with UV-B to reduce photosynthetic performance in the diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum

It has been proposed that ocean acidification (OA) will interact with other environmental factors to influence the overall impact of global change on biological systems. Accordingly we investigated the influence of nitrogen limitation and OA on the physiology of diatoms by growing the diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum Bohlin under elevated (1000 ?atm, HC) or ambient (390 […]

Preface: Field investigation of ocean acidification effects in northwest European seas

The pH of the ocean is being lowered by its uptake of anthropogenic atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2), produced as a result of combustion of fossil fuels and land use changes. This acidification is especially pronounced in the surface ocean, where the loadings of anthropogenic CO2 are greatest because of the direct contact with the atmosphere. […]

Bacteriostatic suppression in Norway lobster (Nephrops norvegicus) exposed to manganese or hypoxia under pressure of ocean acidification

Future ocean acidification (OA) and warming following climate change elicit pervasive stressors to the inhabitants of the sea. Previous experimental exposure to OA for 16 weeks at pH levels predicted for 2100, has shown to result in serious immune suppression of the Norway lobster, Nephrops norvegicus. The lobsters are currently affected by stressors such as […]

Saturation-state sensitivity of marine bivalve larvae to ocean acidification

Ocean acidification results in co-varying inorganic carbon system variables. Of these, an explicit focus on pH and organismal acid–base regulation has failed to distinguish the mechanism of failure in highly sensitive bivalve larvae....Show More Summary

Oral presentation: “The Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON)”, 2015 Aquatic Sciences Meeting, 22-27 February 2015, Granada, Spain

Date, time & location: 25 February 2015, 08.45, Andalucia 1 The Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) aims to serve scientific and policy needs for coordinated, worldwide information on ocean acidification (OA) and its ecological impacts. Show More Summary

Oregon scientists unlock new clues about how acid oceans kill shellfish, opening doors to potential solutions

Could the solution to ocean acidification and its deadly effects on shellfish lie in a bottle of Tums? New research from Oregon State University scientists suggests it could. According to a study published in the journal Nature Climate Change, the real cause of the phenomenon that’s killing oysters, mussels and other shellfish up and down […]

Ocean Acidification Forum and winter networking event, Portland, 16 December 2014

Tuesday, 16 December, 2014, 04:30 PM – 07:30 PM Cost: $15-$40 Location: Gulf of Maine Research Institute, 350 Commercial St., Portland, ME 04101 Ocean acidification is changing the chemistry of the ocean and is caused primarily by the buildup of carbon dioxide and reductions in pH and calcium carbonate in its waters. Runoff and river […]

Galápagos coral reef persistence after ENSO warming across an acidification gradient

Anthropogenic CO2 is causing warming and ocean acidification. Coral reefs are being severely impacted, yet confusion lingers regarding how reefs will respond to these stressors over this century. Since the 1982-83 El Niño-Southern Oscillation...Show More Summary

Herring organs damaged by acidified seawater

Ocean acidification could damage the organs of Atlantic herring, as well as slow their growth and development, recent experiments show. It adds to the list of pressures currently threatening this commercially important species, including over-fishing and marine pollution. Show More Summary

A review and meta-analysis of the effects of multiple abiotic stressors on marine embryos and larvae

Marine organisms are simultaneously exposed to anthropogenic stressors with likely interactive effects, including synergisms in which the combined effects of multiple stressors are greater than the sum of individual effects. Early life...Show More Summary

The ocean carbon sink – impacts, vulnerabilities, and challenges

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is, next to water vapour, considered to be the most important natural greenhouse gas on Earth. Rapidly rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations caused by human actions such as fossil-fuel burning, land-use change or cement production over the past 250 years have given cause for concern that changes in Earth’s climate system may progress […]
