Extracellular pH changes in echinoderms as a consequence of ocean acidification

Atmospheric carbon dioxide levels have recently surpassed 400 ppm, a substantial increase since the 1750’s value of 280 ppm. The ocean, an enormous sink of this CO2, is projected to experience a change in seawater pH of up to 0.77 pH units by the year 2300. Regionally polar latitudes are expected to show the effects […]

What is ocean acidification? As the ocean absorbs increasing levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere, it causes changes in ocean chemistry. When carbon dioxide reacts with water, it creates carbonic acid, decreasing pH an...
