Ocean Acidification Symposium: The Other CO2 Problem

Katie Baer Jones talks about the impact of Ocean Acidification on coralline algae and iconic shellfish such as Paua and oysters. Increases in the total dissolved inorganic carbon in the ocean lower the pH in the ocean, reducing the availability of carbonate ions for the making of shells.

Ocean Acidification Symposium: Recent Advances in Measurement of Seawater pH

Hugh Doyle's research focuses on accurate measurement of the pH in seawater. He explains some of the short-comings of even the most accurate measurement tool: Spectrophotometry

Ocean Acidification Symposium: Iron and Bacteria

Els Maas explains the vital role bacteria play in breaking down larger molecules and releasing nutrients. Bacteria are part of the microbial foodweb in the oceans.

Ocean Acidification Symposium: The metal isotope toolbox: Linking Oceans and Climate

Dr Claudine Stirling talks about bio-active metals such as iron, zinc, cadmium and others, and their role in the ocean climate cycle.
