Check out the EPOCA blog for the latest on ocean acidification research, and ACID TEST, a film produced by the Natural Resources Defence Council to raise awareness about the largely unknown problem of ocean acidification. You can also conduct your own ocean acidification experiments in the Stanford Virtual Lab, and calculate what your carbon footprint is, and how to reduce it.
