Papers on ocean acidification

This is a list of papers on ocean acidification with emphasis on reduction of ocean pH due to rising atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration. The list is not complete, and will most likely be updated in the future in order to make it more thorough and more representative.

UPDATE (April 7, 2010): Pelejero et al. (2010) added.

Paleo-perspectives on ocean acidification – Pelejero et al. (2010) “The anthropogenic rise in atmospheric CO2 is driving fundamental and unprecedented changes in the chemistry of the oceans. This has led to changes in the physiology of a wide variety of marine organisms and, consequently, the ecology of the ocean. This review explores recent advances in our understanding of ocean acidification with a particular emphasis on past changes to ocean chemistry and what they can tell us about present and future changes. We argue that ocean conditions are already more extreme than those experienced by marine organisms and ecosystems for millions of years, emphasising the urgent need to adopt policies that drastically reduce CO2 emissions.”
