    logo11 Ocean acidification

    In the August 2015 edition of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Ocean acidification". In the article, I discuss reasons that the chemistry of the oceans is changing and the impacts of those changes. The major causal factor is the rising level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which is causing the carbon dioxide level in the oceans to rise. This, in turn, leaches calcium carbonate minerals out of shellfish and other marine creatures, weakening and eventually killing the animals. There is no easy remedy for this situation.
