What is Ocean Acidification?



  1. 0 Votes

    Ocean acidification is the result of our carbon dioxide emissions on oceans. Carbon dioxide is not only released into the atmosphere, it is also absorbed by water. One result of this is ocean acidification, which is killing marine life by changing the chemistry of the water. Small marine animals are affected quickly, and then devoured by larger fish who digest the acidity. It is also removing nutrients from the water that sea creatures need to build shells and leaving them unprotected. Scientists estimate ocean acidity has already increased 30% and pH monitoring has become necessary.
