Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) recently introduced the Coastal Communities Ocean Acidification
Act of 2017 to identify and assess communities, including island communities, low-population rural communities, and subsistence communities, that are most dependent on coastal and ocean resources that may be impacted by ocean acidification
Findings from eight years of research into the impact of ocean acidification
will be provided to UN climate negotiators at their next annual conference in Bonn, Germany.
Today, our oceans worldwide provide the livelihood directly for three billion people, but are under immense human and global warming-caused pressures such as sea pollution, acidification
, rising sea levels, over exploitation of ocean resources, coastal degradation and global warming.
Blue crab larvae live at the surface of the open ocean where the pH is decreasing with ocean acidification
The extra carbon dioxide, when it gets dissolved into the ocean, through various simple chemical equations, will increase the PH or acidification
in the ocean," Avery explained.
Between bleaching and ocean acidification
, corals are in danger.
The majority of the strains (26) revealed weak acidification
, 15 strains were able to hydrolyze casein and twenty six out of 30 LAB strains revealed lipolytic activity .
Coral reefs survive within a narrow range of temperatures, and a report from the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies points out that more than 90 percent of the Great Barrier Reef has endured a bleaching event due to warmer temperatures and acidification
This quickly increasing ocean acidification
has wide-ranging effects on marine life, from inhibiting the growth of oysters to altering the behavior of fish.
SyDNEY (CyHAN)- Australia will hold the first "Ocean in a High CO2 World" symposium hosted in the southern hemisphere, with world-leading experts assembling to discuss solutions to the ongoing acidification
of the seven seas.
The Great Barrier Reef is in worse shape than suspected thanks to ocean acidification
, Mathieu Mongin of Australia's CSIRO and colleagues say February 23 in Nature Communications.
