Aquarium lecture series: Ocean acidification and its possible impacts on marine ecosystems

Scott Doney, Ph.D., Senior Scientist, Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute

Atmospheric carbon dioxide levels are increasing dramatically due to our burning of fossil fuels. About a quarter of the excess carbon dioxide dissolves in the ocean, leading to large changes in seawater chemistry. Scott Doney’s research focus is on ocean biogeochemistry and the global climate system. He will talk about how ocean acidification may significantly impact marine life, from plankton to shellfish to coral reefs.
