CT scans of coral skeletons reveal ocean acidity increases reef erosion

Academics / General Science : ScienceDaily: Science Society

For coral reefs to persist, rates of reef construction must exceed reef breakdown. Prior research has largely focused on the negative impacts of ocean acidification on reef growth, but new research demonstrates that lower ocean pH a...

Coral reefs could be more vulnerable to coastal development than predicted
