Latest Chemical oceanography Stories
Changes in ocean chemistry â€” a consequence of increased carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from human industrial activity â€” could cause U.S.
Ocean acidification, a direct result of increased CO2 emission, is set to change the Earth's marine ecosystems forever and may have a direct impact on our economy, resulting in substantial revenue declines and job losses.
Overfishing and disease have decimated shellfish populations in many of the world's temperate estuarine and coastal ecosystems.
A $16 million program launched by the UK government will fund a five-year research study on ocean acidification.
New calculations made by marine chemists from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) suggest that low-oxygen "dead zones" in the ocean could expand significantly over the next century.
Bill Deutsch, of Auburn University, has launched a new project that is aimed at reducing farm runoff that has become a driving force behind water pollution in the Gulf of Mexico.
A new study found that ocean acidification caused by climate change is stripping away the protective shell of tiny yet vital organisms that absorb huge amounts of carbon pollution from the atmosphere.
Ocean acidification is the name that was given to the ongoing decrease in the pH of Earth’s oceans, a cause of the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. About 30 to 40 percent of the carbon dioxide that is released by humans into the atmosphere dissolves into the lakes, oceans, and rivers. To maintain the chemical equilibrium, some of it reacts with the water to create carbonic acid. Some of these extra carbonic acid molecules react with a water molecule to provide a...
