Transcript of Ocean Acidification and Green Houses

Ocean Acidification is the on going decrease in pH of the Earth's oceans, caused by the uptake of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere
What is Ocean Acidification?
Carbon dioxide,Shell building,and ocean acidification
Carbon dioxide dissolves in the ocean and reacts to water to form carbonic acid.

That generates bicarbonate, carbonate and hydrogen ions.
Potential effects
How is Ocean Acidification used in green houses
Fundamental changes in seawater chemistry that are occurring throughout the world's oceans. Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, the release of carbon dioxide (CO2) from humankind's industrial and agricultural activities has increased the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.

Definition from google
The open ocean ecosystem
Plankton serves as the foundation of the marine food chain.
Based on plankton
planktonic species including coccolithophores , foraminifera, and pteropods need carbonate ions to build their shell.
If ocean acidification increases then carbonate based planktonic's may decline


NOTE: Stefany did 3 pages and jackie did 3 so it was half each.
