Introduction to Ocean Acidification
Atmospheric carbon dioxide levels are the highest they have been in human history, and possibly the last 20 million years. The continuing release of this gas into the atmosphere means that more carbon dioxide is being dissolved into the oceans. How does this affect ocean chemistry and marine ecosystems, and what can we do about it? In this resource you will conduct a simple experiment and complete a design challenge to learn more about carbon dioxide and the ocean.
