ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of climate change on various species and the environment. It explains how an increase in carbon dioxide in the ocean changes carbonate chemistry by increasing acidity. It predicts that the upper ocean will experience a change in carbonate chemistry as indicated by current carbon dioxide emission developments. Also noted is the influence of acidification on marine ecosystems with a decrease in calcification in corals, algae and other organisms like oysters.
