De-mystifying ocean acidication: 3 things to help you understand what’s going on

Ocean acidification is a hefty buzz word in the marine science community. It was coined in 2003 by two climatologists and since then scientists have recognized its negative effects on corals, shellfish, and even plankton. Ocean acidification, or OA, is a direct result of increased amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The change in […]
