ABSTRACT
The article discusses the nature of ocean acidification in which the sea absorbs great amount of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere which deemed harmful to all life on the planet. It mentions that as the ocean gets more acidic, concentration of carbonate ion in seawater decreases. It notes that it can cause significant harm to species and ecosystems as acidification is uneven across temporal and geographic frames. The means to address ocean acidification are also given.
