Marine bivalve shell geochemistry and ultrastructure from modern low pH environments: Environmental effect versus experimental bias
Bivalve shells can provide excellent archives of past environmental change but have not been used to interpret ocean acidification events. We investigated carbon, oxygen and trace element records from different shell layers ...
Coral and mollusc resistance to ocean acidification adversely affected by warming
Increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO 2) concentrations are expectedto decrease surface ocean pH by 0.3-0.5 units by 2100 (refs,), lowering the carbonate ion concentration of surfacewaters. This rapid acidification is ...
