Coral Reefs, Underwater Springs and OA

Coral Reefs, Underwater Springs and OA
Ocean acidification reduces the density of coral skeletons, making coral reefs more vulnerable to disruption and erosion, according to a new study of corals growing where submarine springs naturally lower the pH of seawater.

Sea Urchin's and Ocean Acidification
Stanford scientists have discovered that some purple sea urchins living along the coast of California and Oregon have the surprising ability to rapidly evolve in acidic ocean water -- a capacity that may come in handy as climate change increases ocean acidity.
