Posted on NY Times DOT Earth: 26 Aug 2013 — By Andrew C. Revkin Royal Society: A detail from the cover of a Royal Society journal issue focused on the impacts of rising carbon dioxide levels on ocean ecosystems. The image is of CO2 bubbles rising from a volcanic vent near Naples.
Posted on OA: 23 Aug 2013 Ocean acidification results from an increase in the concentrations of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) impacts on marine calcifying species, which is predicted to become more pronounced in the future. By the end of this century, atmospheric pCO2 levels will have doubled relative to the pre-industrial

Molecular Ecology 22(11): 2884–2897 Global climate change is projected to accelerate during the next century, altering oceanic patterns in temperature, pH and oxygen concentrations. Documenting patterns of genetic adaptation to these variables in locations that

Coastal upwelling zones may be at enhanced risk from ocean acidification as upwelling brings low aragonite saturation state (ΩAr) waters to the surface that are further suppressed by
Posted on OA: 08 Aug 2013 UW and the Community Washington’s governor and state legislators in the last session created a hub at the University of Washington to coordinate research and monitoring of ocean acidification and its effects on local sea life such as oysters, clams and fish. Based on
