Drivers of biogeochemical variability in a central California kelp forest: implications for local amelioration of ocean acidification

Kelp forests are among the world’s most productive marine ecosystems, and they have the potential to locally ameliorate ocean acidification (OA). In order to understand the contribution of kelp metabolism to local biogeochemistry, we must first quantify the natural variability and the relative contributions of physical and biological drivers to

New Paper on “Severe biological effects under present-day estuarine acidification in the seasonally variable Salish Sea”

Nina Bednaršek, Jan A. Newton, Marcus W. Beck, Simone R. Alin, Richard A. Feely, Natasha R. Christman, and Terrie Klinger Abstract: Estuaries are recognized as one of the habitats most vulnerable to coastal ocean acidification due to seasonal extremes and prolonged duration of acidified conditions. This is combined with co-occurring
