  • Ocean Acidificationby Jean-Pierre Gattuso; Lina Hansson

    Oxford University Press 2011; US$ 66.99

    The ocean helps moderate climate change thanks to its considerable capacity to store CO2, through the combined actions of ocean physics, chemistry, and biology. This storage capacity limits the amount of human-released CO2 remaining in the atmosphere. As CO2 reacts with seawater, it generates dramatic changes in carbonate chemistry, including decreases... more...
