Ocean acidification- a purpose-built experimental facility

Graeme is at it again! ( I owe this guy a fruit cake!) Here he is explaining about a purpose-built experimental facility for testing Ocean Acidification. Increased CO2 means a lowering of the Ocean's pH. Animals at a lower pH actually loss shell weight, which means the shells are dissolving under the more acidic conditions, or they arent generating new shell as quickly as they would have under normal conditions. Apologies for the sound (again) Lots of water around! Click on the image for the link to the youtube clip
