In this 1:42 video produced by World Ocean Observatory and Compass Light Productions, Dr. Carol Turley of the Plymouth Marine Laboratory will talk about the ocean acidification and the known impacts on marine organisms whose hightened sensitivity offers a stark example of the impacts of ocean acidification. Produced by World Ocean Observatory and Compass Light Productions.
Acidification is a critical outcome of increased dissolution of CO2 in seawater. Decreasing ocean pH results in decreasing calcification, respiratory difficulties and reproductive changes in marine species worldwide. The most evident result can be found in the dramatic changes evident in our oceans’ organisms. For more information, visit http://thew2o.net/content/ocean-acidification.
