Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, resulting from the burning of fossil fuels by human activity, reinforce the greenhouse effect and cause climate change. While public awareness of this global global problem is growing, ocean acidification, described as "the other CO2 problem", is still largely unknown.
This book answers the ten key questions that address the biogeochemical foundations of acidification, past, current and future developments, the impacts on marine organisms and humans, and finally the remediation pathways.
He draws his answers from fields as diverse as biogeochemistry, ecology, physiology, evolution, aquaculture and fisheries, economics and sociology.
