Ocean Acidification by the Alliance for Climate Education: CO2 + H2O = H2CO3 which is carbonic acid. when it deprotonates as it does in water it turns into an H+ ion, which is the acid part and HCO3- which is bicarbonate ion so for every co2 added you get a bicarbonate and an acid or H+ ion.
The powerful before-and-after photographs below were shared as evidence of ocean acidification at the 2012 International Coral Reef Symposium in Australia. Please help spread awareness about ocean acidification by pinning these before-and-after photos and starting the conversation about ocean conservation. #OceanAcidification
Please share this to help spread awareness about ocean acidification. #Save the #ocean. #SOS. Increasing levels of carbon dioxide and decreasing of pH level of seawater is killing all these beautiful organisms.
This groundbreaking NRDC documentary explores the startling phenomenon of ocean acidification, which may soon challenge marine life on a scale not seen for tens of millions of years. The film, featuring Sigourney Weaver, originally aired on Discovery Planet Green.
