More long-term research is necessary for an accurate determination of how marine species will cope with increasing ocean acidification, according to new research.

Carbon Dioxide Emissions Keep Conch Snails From Escaping Predation
2014-01-07 13:18:57

New research from an international team of researchers has found that if more carbon dioxide makes its way into the ocean – conch snails will be more vulnerable to predation.

A new Duke University-led study has documented dramatic, natural short-term increases in the acidity of a North Carolina estuary.

Rivers, Streams Release Far More Carbon Dioxide Than Do Lakes: Study
2013-12-10 06:51:50

Contrary to common belief, rivers and streams release carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere at a rate five times greater than the world's lakes and reservoirs combined, according to a study published in the journal Nature.

Sea-Level Rise Will Continue To Fuel Destructive Coastal Flooding
2013-12-05 10:26:23

Two new review studies published in the journal Nature reveal how a changing climate will impact coastal habitat, including the destructive forces of coastal flooding due to rising sea levels.

Anxiety In Fish Caused By Rising Ocean Acidification

Ocean Acidification
2013-04-01 10:32:20

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...
