How will ocean acidification affect seaweed?

Researcher Celso Hernández writes in ScienceTrends.com that the rise in temperature in the oceans affects marine life and ecosystems, but it is accompanied by another problem caused by an increase of CO2: ocean acidification. Atmospheric CO2 dissolves and reacts with seawater, forming the chemical compounds that…

Arctic phytoplankton are more resistant to climate change

Ocean acidification triggered by climate change seems to cause less harm to the Arctic phytoplankton, which is resistant to the changes in climate that affect the Arctic Ocean’s coastal waters, as reported in a study released by Canadian researchers and the German Alfred Wegener Institute in the journal…
