Underwater springs reveal how coral reefs respond to ocean acidification

Underwater springs reveal how coral reefs respond to ocean acidification | Ocean Acidification and Biomineralization | Scoop.it
Ocean acidification due to rising carbon dioxide levels will reduce the density of coral skeletons, making coral reefs more vulnerable to disruption and erosion, according to a new study of corals growing where submarine springs naturally lower the...
