Ocean acidification: The risks and challenges for Maine

Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere over the past century is making our oceans more acidic. Bob Steneck, Professor of Oceanography, Marine Biology, and Marine Policy at the University of Maine’s Darling Marine Center will discuss why the cold waters of the Gulf of Maine may be most at risk. He will share potential consequences of ocean acidification for lobsters, softshell clams, northern shrimp, oysters, and other plants and animals that produce limestone shells.
