Calcification (Other Marine Organisms)- Summary

For some time now, the ongoing rise in the atmosphere’s CO2 concentration has been claimed to be raising havoc – or just about to be doing so – with earth’s calcifying marine organisms by lowering the calcium carbonate saturation state of seawater, which phenomenon has been predicted to greatly hamper the abilities of these creatures to produce their calcium carbonate skeletons (Orr et al., 2005).
