Gregoire Pushes for Ocean Acidification Action

Posted on Sightline Daily: 27 Nov 2012 — By Jennifer Langston — Recommendations on our souring seas from Washington’s panel on ocean acidification.  This post is part of the research project: Northwest Ocean Acidification Update: Outgoing governor Chris Gregoire this morning announced a $3.3 million budget recommendation and signed an executive order to begin funding

Concentration boundary layers around complex assemblages of macroalgae: implications for the effects of ocean acidification on understory coralline algae

Posted on EPOCA: 27 Nov 2012  Metabolic processes have the potential to modulate the effects of ocean acidification (OA) in nearshore macroalgal beds. We investigated whether natural mixed assemblages of the articulate coralline macroalga Arthrocardia corymbosa and understory crustose coralline algae (CCA) altered pH and O2 concentrations within and immediately above their canopies.
