Climate change or no climate change, there is one consequence that is in no doubt: As the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere increases, so will its concentration in the ocean – resulting in ocean acidification. When CO2 dissolve...

Small changes in pH have direct effects on marine bacterial community composition: a microcosm approach

Biology / Marine Biology : Ocean Acidification

As the atmospheric CO2 concentration rises, more CO2 will dissolve in the oceans, leading to a reduction in pH. Effects of ocean acidification on bacterial communities have mainly been studied in biologically complex systems, in whi...

Effects of ocean acidification on marine dissolved organic matter are not detectable over the succession of phytoplankton blooms

Biology / Marine Biology : Ocean Acidification

Marine dissolved organic matter (DOM) is one of the largest active organic carbon reservoirs on Earth, and changes in its pool size or composition could have a major impact on the global carbon cycle. Ocean acidification is a potent...
