Isotopic tools for protecting the seas

The oceans and seas are our greatest natural resource, but they are under threat for many reasons. The IAEA operates one of the world´s leading centres for marine environmental protection, the Monaco-based Marine Environment Laboratory (MEL). The Laboratory applies nuclear and isotopic techniques to research and document pollution and other problems, and technically assists States facing threats to their lakes, seas, and coastal waters.

There are two sections relevant to ocean acidification:
– Ocean acidification and the Monaco Environment Group
– The effects of ocean acidification on marine calcifying organisms
