    Dear Professors

    Seminars are extremelly important for a better understanding of this process, specially through a high level staff suach as this institution, Stanford University which I visited before during the late 70´s.

    In my opinion, the Ocean acidification event is an issue that is already well discussed worldwide within the scientific comuninity but the information about it, isn´t completely understood by the people in general. I believe that the information and education can lead to a better understanding of this dangerous process that we all are facing today. As you all know, ocean acidification can trigger biological and chemical oprocesses and eventually kill our world oceans and life as it is.
    Kind regards
    Trajano Paiva
