Acidic seas: understanding the threat of ocean acidification for marine life

June 27, 3:30pm - 4:30pm
Manoa Campus, Waikiki Aquarium Add to Calendar

Join us on Tuesday, June 27th in the Waikiki Aquarium Classroom from 3:30-4:30pm with Christopher Wall Ph.D(c) from Hawaiʻi Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB).

Ocean acidification is a complex process where increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is progressively absorbed by the world’s oceans, resulting in changes to the chemistry and acidity (pH) of seawater. Changing seawater conditions can have serious consequences for marine life, including in reef-building corals which are integral to the structure and function of coral reef ecosystems. In my talk, I will discuss the causes and consequences of ocean acidification for coral reefs and what biological mechanisms may support species vulnerability or resilience to changing ocean conditions.
