Posted on OA: 21 May 2015 Dungeness crab (Cancer magister) eggs and larvae were exposed to laboratory controlled, low-pH seawater in an effort to assess current and predicted-future impacts of Ocean Acidification (OA) on hatching success, survival and growth. Treatment levels of pH ~8.0, ~7.5 and ~7.1 represented the
Posted on OA: 15 May 2015 Ocean acidification (OA) is widely recognized as an increasing threat to marine ecosystems. Many marine invertebrates have dual-phase life cycles in which planktonic larvae connect and sustain otherwise disconnected benthic adult populations. Many planktonic larvae are particularly sensitive to environmental stresses including OA.
Posted on OA: 5 May 2015 Estuaries and coastal seas provide valuable ecosystem services but are particularly vulnerable to the co-occurring threats of climate change and oxygen-depleted dead zones. We analyzed the severity of climate change predicted for existing dead zones, and found that 94% of dead zones are
Posted: 03 May 2013 Integrated Ocean Observing System, May 2013. Video. Since the start of the industrial revolution, the ocean has silently absorbed roughly 30% of the carbon dioxide that people generate through industry and agriculture. Now ocean chemistry of the seawater is rapidly changing in a process known as ocean acidification.
