...Jerred Seveyka; Katherine Cousins This hands-on lab allows students to explore concepts and quantify effects of ocean acidification. Many laboratory activities simplify ocean acidification through computer simulations or dripping acid on nonliving materials (e.g., sea shells) but do not provide...

...Amanda L. Kelley; Paul R. Hanson; Stephanie A. Kelley Ocean acidification, a product of CO 2 absorption by the world’s oceans, is largely driven by the anthropogenic combustion of fossil fuels and has already lowered the pH of marine ecosystems. Organisms with calcium carbonate shells and skeletons...
