Bivalve mollusks belong to a group of benthic and calcifying organisms that have been studied to understand the effect of acidification and climate change (Kurihara et al., 2007; Barton et al., 2012; Waldbusser et al., 2013).
The study suggests that continued ocean warming and acidification could impact everything from how fish move to how they eat.
Ocean acidification describes a significant change in the chemistry of the ocean.
Compared to the open sea, coastal seas are more vulnerable to changes in seawater carbonate chemistry and it is more difficult to project how complex coastal ecosystems will respond to ocean acidification (Doney et al., 2007; Melzner et al., 2013).
The researchers found that experiencing a simulation of ocean acidification's effects spurred meaningful gains in people's understanding of the issue, according to a Stanford news release
(8) OA could potentially modify these early trophic pathways in ways that would affect entire ocean communities and could dramatically escalate the global impact of ocean acidification.
Ocean Foundation pledged $1.5 min to build resilience to ocean acidification in the seafood sector by revolutionizing the technology to protect shellfish and other aquaculture farms.
Therefore it is extremely worrying to find that tropical corals are so vulnerable to ocean acidification, as this will stop them from being able to spread further north and escape the damage caused by water that is too hot for them."
Estuaries characterized by acid sulfate soil runoff experience extreme acidification on both chronic and episodic timcscalcs (Wilson & Hyne 1997.
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.
When the ocean absorbs CO2 from the air, not only does that CO2 increase the temperature of the water, and cause more ice melt, but it also causes (http://oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/acidification.html) ocean acidification .
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. "Reefs dampen the effect of storms from the open sea and reduce the force of waves, preventing the erosion of shorelines," writes Irene Banos Ruiz for Deutsche Welle, noting that reefs support 25 percent of marine life.
This quickly increasing ocean acidification has wide-ranging effects on marine life, from inhibiting the growth of oysters to altering the behavior of fish.
