Research shows that ocean acidification causes confusion in baby fish, making them ignore the sounds of safe habitats and attracted to other noise.
New research has revealed that herring larvae seem to benefit from limited rises in CO2 levels in water that cause zooplankton to thrive, offering more food.
Using synthetic biology, researchers have identified a key biological mechanism in phytoplankton that is disrupted by ocean acidification.
BOB and MARI are a buoy and marine mooring system equipped with sensors for monitoring CO2 and other measures of acidification in the San Francisco Bay.
Researchers reveal a model showing how ocean acidification affects corals’ ability to thicken, leaving them vulnerable and more breakable.
Research on tide pools on the west coast reveals that marine vegetation may act as a buffer against increasing acidity of ocean water, protecting shellfish.
Researchers have observed a rapid shift in how California mussels are structuring their shells—a change that is linked to climate change.
New research indicates that the acidification and warmer temperatures caused by climate change negatively impact marine food webs and biodiversity.
A study led in part by researchers at Duke University maps potential losses to coral reef ecosystems with predicted sea level and temperature rises.
Scientists led by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have measured the acidification owed to anthropogenic carbon in the northeast Pacific Ocean.
The Antarctic Free Ocean Carbon Enrichment experiment used massive underwater tubes, chambers and a sea ice buoy to study ocean acidification.
A study of California mussels finds that food availability is an important factor in their future ability to weather ocean acidification.
Researchers find a bubbling technique works well at removing CO2 from seawater. The method might help mitigate effects of ocean acidification.
Waters near University of Sydney’s One Tree Island Research Station make up a unique coral reef environment, which at low tide consists essentially of a ponded lagoon surrounded by coral. Because of its enclosed shape, researchers were...
Thriving in nutrient-poor surface ocean water, coccolithophores are the dominant phytoplankton in areas where others typically starve. It was believed that, as global warming continues, coccolithophores would stop thriving. Ocean acidification and increased carbon were supposed to...
A lot of scientific theories hold that a warming ocean has increased jellyfish blooms around the world. But more observations are needed to confirm whether or not that is actually the case. These observations typically require renting...
Researchers at the University of Hawaii and University of Alaska have found that increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations are likely to drastically change the chemistry of the Southern Ocean, according to a release. The changes will be...
Climate change, including higher carbon dioxide levels and ocean acidification that comes with it, creates winners and losers in the global marine ecosystem, according to a University of Plymouth release. Japanese kelp, stinging jellyfish and “killer” algae...
Two researchers from the University of Adelaide recently completed a meta-analysis of 632 peer-reviewed studies that established, in the authors’ words, “a conceptualization of biological change derived from quantitative analysis.” This study built on its predecessors by...
Working off the Italian coast, researchers assess the impacts of ocean acidification on mermaid’s wineglass, a delicate alga.
