Acidification overview

The University of Plymouth’s world-leading ocean acidification research has been highlighted in a United Nations report launched at the end of the Copenhagen Climate Change summit.

Scientific Synthesis of the Impacts of Ocean Acidification on Marine Biodiversity, compiled by the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity, is the most comprehensive overview to date of all existing scientific evidence on ocean acidification – including breakthrough research led by the University of Plymouth’s Dr Jason Hall-Spencer.

The landmark publication adds increased urgency for world leaders to get agreements on CO2 cutbacks given the impacts of ocean acidification on marine and coastal biodiversity, and to raise awareness of policy makers on its possible ecological and socio- economic implications.
