In order to address the challenges of future ocean acidification at a regional scale, it is necessary

The combined effects of acidification and hypoxia on pH and aragonite saturation in the coastal waters of the California current ecosystem and the northern Gulf of Mexico

Highlights In surface waters the percentage change in the carbon parameters due to increasing CO2 emissions are similar. In subsurface waters the changes are enhanced due to changes in the buffer capacity. Increased anthropogenic CO2 concentrations will expose organisms to hypercapnic conditions. Abstract Inorganic carbon chemistry data from the surface and subsurface
