ABSTRACT
The article reports on the effect of climate change and acidification on coral reefs based on the research paper "Projecting coral reef futures under global warming and ocean acidification," by John M. Pandolfi and colleagues. It mentions that climate change and acidification have intensified the threat of degradation and decline in coral reef systems. It states the possibility of dramatic, rapid, and global-scale loss of coral reefs as an effect of global warming and ocean acidification.
