Yesterday we mentioned one connection between the oceans and global climate change. Another connection is that the CO2 that is being absorbed into the ocean is changing its pH. This is known as ocean acidification and is becoming a big topic of concern and research. There's a seminar next week that looks like it might be a good background to the issue and some of the research in the area.
