New Study Could Pave Way for an Ocean Acidification Early Warning System for Coral Reefs

June 3, 2015

A new study on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef showed that corals are continuously exposed to two key climate change-related stressors throughout the year, but not necessarily at the same time. The results can help scientists better monitor the exposure of coral reef ecosystems to global climate change.

Rising Ocean Acidification Leads to Anxiety in Fish

December 4, 2013

A new research study combining marine physiology, neuroscience, pharmacology, and behavioral psychology has revealed a surprising outcome from increases of carbon dioxide uptake in the oceans: anxious fish.

Deep-Sea Biodiversity Impacted by Climate Change’s Triple Threat

April 27, 2016

A new study found that vulnerability of deep-sea biodiversity to climate change’s triple threat – rising water temperatures, and decreased oxygen, and pH levels – is not uniform across the world’s oceans.

Ocean Scientists Recommend Plan to Combat Changes to Seawater Chemistry

April 6, 2016

…triggering permanent changes to ocean chemistry along the North American West Coast that require immediate, decisive action to combat. That action includes development of a coordinated regional management strategy, concluded a panel of scientific experts including Andrew Dickson, a professor of marine chemistry at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC…

Study Reveals Ocean Acidification’s Effects on Shrimp Biology

June 1, 2015

A new study by Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego researchers reveals that more carbon dioxide in seawater could lead to more calcium in shrimp exoskeletons and a decrease in their transparency.

Deep-Ocean Protections May Help Mitigate Climate Change

November 12, 2015

In largely unseen ways, humans are changing the character of the deep oceans, disrupting environmental conditions and threatening biodiversity to an extent that could require hundreds of years or more for natural systems to recover.
