Acid test for corals (video)



AIMS scientist Dr Katharina Fabricius has led two research expeditions to study natural carbon dioxide seeps in Milne Bay Province, Papua New Guinea – the only presently known cool, carbon dioxide seep site in tropical waters containing coral reef ecosystems. The study has given scientists unprecedented insights into what coral reefs would look like if greenhouse gas emissions and resulting ocean acidification continues to increase at present rates.
