PEI Faculty Seminar Series: Ocean Acidification

 

Fall 2017 PEI Faculty Seminar Series – 11/7/2017

François M.M. Morel, Albert G. Blanke, Jr., Professor of Geosciences, professor of geosciences and the Princeton Environmental Institute

The world’s oceans absorb about a quarter of the carbon dioxide (CO2) humans release into the atmosphere every year. This acidic CO2 alters the chemistry of our oceans, which in turn affects ocean processes and the health of marine life. Morel will discuss how ocean acidification driven by increasing levels of CO2 is changing how the world’s oceans function — and the plants and animals that live in them.
