Southern Ocean Calcareous Zooplankton Response to Ocean Acidification
Entry ID: ASAC_3046

Abstract: Metadata record for data from AAS (ASAC) project 3046.

The overall objective is to characterise the response of Southern Ocean calcareous zooplankton to ocean acidification resulting from anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Simulated increases in anthropogenic CO2 suggest a reduction in the calcification rates of calcareous organisms. A change in the calcification in the Southern Ocean may cause ... View entire text
