Examining How CO2 Affects Marine Life

How Careful Control of Gases Gave MBARI the Results...

The Monterey Bay Research Institute (MBARI) sits on one of the most spectacular coastlines in California with Big Sur to the South and Santa Cruz to the North. But beneath this beauty the Monterey Bay and our oceans are changing rapidly due to the influx of CO2 in our atmosphere. According to Dr. Jim Barry, a Benthic Biologist and Senior Scientist at MBARI, about one-third of human C02 gas emissions in our atmosphere are absorbed by the ocean, making the ocean 30% more acidic than just 100 years ago—now coined "Ocean Acidification."
