New interactive animation: communicating coastal acidification

Coastal acidification represents a significant environmental change associated with nutrient runoff from land, or eutrophication

This coastal acidification animation is intended to support teachers who are educating students about the causes and effects of ocean acidification and want to shift their students’ learning from a global problem to a coastal water quality issue. Coastal acidification represents a significant environmental change associated with nutrient runoff from land, or eutrophication. Coastal regions are likely to be disproportionately affected by compounding carbon input sources such as runoff from agriculture, industry, and urban populations. The science of coastal acidification is continuing to develop and will require action at multiple levels and on several spatial scales. The animation synthesizes a very complex topic in hopes it will open the door to conversations about the role humans play and the much needed solutions to prevent and address issues like coastal acidification. This topic can be taught in conjunction with lessons about food webs and ecosystems, the environmental impacts of climate change and CO2 emissions, and chemistry lessons concerning real-life applications.
