Coral calcification response to ocean warming and acidification in the southern Great Barrier Reef

Kang, Jung Ok

Description

The current unprecedented rate of increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide levels is resulting in rapid warming and acidification of the surface ocean. The effect that these changes have had and will continue to have on marine calcifiers is poorly constrained. Particularly, calcification on high latitude coral reefs which lie near the limit for reef growth could be expected to respond first to changes in ocean pH and temperature. Accordingly, this study aims to determine to what extent rising...[Show more]
