Description The excess of anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) produced since the industrial revolution is being absorbed by the oceans through the carbon cycle. Atmospheric carbon dioxide has increased about 40% since the preindustrial era, and the oceans have absorbed more than a third of these emissions. This has led to the release of H+ ions via seawater carbonate chemistry, and hence to a reduction in ocean pH, that is, ocean acidification. Ocean pH has been reduced by roughly 0.1 units, which is... Thesis (Master's)--University of Washington, 2013
