Living in Coca-cola- Ocean acidification
One of the emerging Climate Change related threats to our oceans is that of Ocean Acidification. Our marine waters are slowly and steadily turning becoming like Coca-cola! In this presentation we will discuss the links between Ocean Acidification and a warming world, the “winners” and “losers”, and our potential roles as divers.
