Carbon dioxide (CO2) is released into the atmosphere through a variety of natural and human activities. It is absorbed by the world’s oceans, creating a chemical reaction that affects the ocean’s acidity. An increase in ocean acidity may cause significant consequences for individual marine organisms, communities, ecosystems, and food webs. Hands-on experimentation will guide participants in understanding the science behind ocean acidification and its potential impacts on marine animals and ecosystems.
