Southern Ocean Acidification

There is now a clear scientific consensus that the increasing volume and rate of our carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are causing rapid and unprecedented changes in our oceans. These will have potentially serious impacts within the 21st century, for the sustainability and management of many marine and coastal ecosystems.

This report sets the issues in plain language, explaining what we know, what we don't yet know, what's at stake and what scientific work is currently being undertaken.
