Changes in deep-water CO2 concentrations over the last several decades determined from discrete pCO2 measurements

Changes in deep-water CO2 concentrations over the last several decades determined from discrete pCO2 measurements | Amocean OceanScoops | Scoop.it
Detection and attribution of hydrographic and biogeochemical changes in the deep ocean are challenging due to the small magnitude of their signals and to limitations in the accuracy of available data.

CO2-driven seawater acidification differentially affects development and molecular plasticity along life history of fish (Oryzias latipes)

CO2-driven seawater acidification differentially affects development and molecular plasticity along life history of fish (Oryzias latipes) | Amocean OceanScoops | Scoop.it
Fish early life stages have been shown to react sensitive to simulated ocean acidification. In particular, acid–base disturbances elicited by altered seawater carbonate chemistry have been shown to induce pathologies in larval fish.

Short Sharp Science: The fish with a rainbow eye

Short Sharp Science: The fish with a rainbow eye | Amocean OceanScoops | Scoop.it

These eyes are positively spectral. They belong to a Caribbean trumpetfish, and their many colours are created by the refraction of light.

Rays of light bend as they pass in and out of the fish's eyes, and different colours of light bend different amounts. As a result, what was previously white light splinters into bands of different colours, like a rainbow. From bottom to top in the photo, the colours in the eye follow part of the usual rainbow sequence, from orange to blue.
