Developing ocean acidification policy


Howard, W and Sandford, R, Developing ocean acidification policy, Australian Antarctic Magazine, Australian Antarctic Division, 203 Channel Highway, Kingston, TAS 7050, 2008, 15, pp. 2-3. (2008) [Magazine Article]


Ocean acidification differs from global warming in that its impact derives from the chemistry of carbon dioxide (CO2) in seawater, rather than from its physical action as a greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. This means that even if the climate does not warm, increasing atmospheric CO2 will inevitably increase ocean acidity.
