Researchers Study Ocean Acidity Effects On Climate

Chemistry professor Oliver W. Wingenter is the principal author of research paper published in the March 7, 2007 issue of Geophysical Research Letters, which investigates how increased levels of ocean acidity and carbon dioxide concentrations have resulted in unexpected changes in marine biological production of organic gases that affect the Earth’s climate.

The study, funded by New Mexico Tech, the National Science Foundation and the Comer Foundation, sheds light on several chemical processes that regularly occur throughout the world’s oceans and which may have the potential to help regulate the Earth’s climate and slow down global warming.
