The effects of ocean acidification and rising sea surface temperatures on shallow-water benthic organisms in Antarctica
Entry ID: NSF-ANT10-41022_1


Summary
Abstract: The research will investigate the individual and combined effects of rising ocean acidification and sea surface temperatures on shallow-water calcified benthic organisms in western Antarctic Peninsular (WAP) marine communities. The Southern Ocean is predicted to become undersaturated in terms of both aragonite and calcite within 50 and 100 years, respectively, challenging calcification processes. ... View entire text
