Oyster Shells Are an Antacid to the OceansNew York Times | 21 May 2013
Decomposing oyster shells, made of calcium carbonate, act like an antacid pill and help generate alkalinity in the increasingly acidic oceans, a study finds.
Arctic Council unlikely to deal directly with climate changenunatsiaqonline.ca | 16 May 2013

Arctic faces further threat from ocean acidificationGuardian Unlimited | 07 May 2013
The Arctic ecosystem, already under pressure from record ice melts, faces another potential threat in the form of rapid acidification of the ocean, according to an international study published on Monday.
Arctic Ocean 'acidifying rapidly'BBC | 06 May 2013
Carbon dioxide is rapidly altering the chemistry of the Arctic, and the changes will last many thousands of years, a report says.
New ocean acidification studyWorld Fishing | 23 Apr 2013
A new study published in the 'Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA' has revealed a new insight into the potential effects of ocean acidification on the sensory function of larval tropical cobia.
The Geological Record of Ocean Acidificationjournalistsresource.org | 19 Mar 2013
In the past, studies of large-scale changes to the Earths oceans have been restricted both by the limited nature of physical sampling and the reality that often these changes occur over great lengths of time. A 2012 paper published in the journal Science, The Geological Record of Ocean Acidification, takes a new approach by examining the geological record to determine levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, global temperatures and ocean acidification over the past 300 million years.
Study Reveals East Coast Acidification SensitivityWoods Hole Oceanographic Institution | 04 Mar 2013
A continental-scale chemical survey in the waters of the eastern U.S. and Gulf of Mexico is helping researchers determine how distinct bodies of water will resist changes in acidity.
Antarctic marine life threatenedBBC | 25 Nov 2012
The first evidence of ocean acidification affecting marine wildlife has significance for the future, say scientists.
International coordination to address ocean acidificationUNESCO | 11 Oct 2012
Ocean acidification experts expressed increasing concerns with how marine organisms will adapt to new corrosive conditions during an international symposium on the subject last week, warning that life throughout the worlds oceans will have to adapt rapidly to changing conditions.
Ocean acidity - new Google Earth tourIUCN | 08 Oct 2012
A new guide on ocean acidification and a new tour on Google Earth, showing the speed and scale of impact CO2 emissions will have on the ocean, is being launched today at The Ocean in a High CO2 World Symposium in Monterey, California.
Report warns of global food insecurity as climate change destroys fisheriesGuardian Unlimited | 24 Sep 2012
The Persian Gulf, Libya, and Pakistan are at high risk of food insecurity in coming decades because climate change and ocean acidification are destroying fisheries, according to a report released on Monday.The report from the campaign group Oceana warns of growing food insecurity, especially for poorer people.
'Spineless' animals under threatBBC | 31 Aug 2012
A fifth of invertebrates - animals without backbones - could be at risk of extinction, according to scientists.
Marine species at risk unless drastic protection policies put in placeEurekAlert | 22 Aug 2012
Many marine species will be harmed or won't survive if the levels of carbon dioxide continue to increase. Current protection policies and management practices are unlikely to be enough to save them. Unconventional, non-passive methods to conserve marine ecosystems need to be considered if various marine species are to survive.
Ocean Acidification: The Other CO2 ProblemWoods Hole Oceanographic Institution | 07 Aug 2012
Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, when humans began burning coal in large quantities, the worlds ocean water has gradually become more acidic. Like global warming, this phenomenon, which is known as ocean acidification, is a direct consequence of increasing levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) in Earths atmosphere.
Studying Evolution With an Eye on the FutureNew York Times | 30 Jul 2012
Sinead Collins is creating evolution in her laboratory at the University of Edinburgh to work on solutions to environmental problems like global warming and marine acidification.
