Will ocean acidification affect deep-water corals?

The global ocean has already taken up half of the atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by humans over the last 200 years, so the ongoing effects of climate change are dampened. That’s right, you can thank the ocean for saving the planet so far.

Science beyond borders

Corals don’t usually know what country they are living in, and those that do assure me that it does not affect their biology, just their politics.

Deep corals of Washington State

It stands to reason that a place blessed with the mountains, beaches, and emerald forests along the Olympic Coast of Washington State in Pacific Northwest should be equally beautiful, productive, rich, and wonderful on the continental break just offshore- 200m or 300m below the tideline.
