    This site answers all your questions about ocean acidification.  The first areas to be impacted by ocean acidification are going to be “high-latitude regions and deep water areas, where the natural carbonate levels are lowest and closest to becoming undersaturated with respect to carbonate”. Cold water coral communities, benthic ecosystems and organisms, and coral reef ecosystems are all going to be affected.

    Coral reefs, such as the Great Barrier Reef, and the communities that depend on them are going to be especially affected by ocean acidification.  Coral is very strongly affected by acidification; it’s effectively dissolved.  Massive and beautifully diverse ocean communities depend on coral, and they will be devastated by warming.
