Oceans' Increasing Acidity Likely to Hurt Biodiversity, Endanger Ecosystem Stability

Stanford researchers have gotten a glimpse into an uncertain future where increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere will lead to higher levels in the ocean as well, leaving the water more acidic and altering underwater ecosystems.

The glimpse comes from waters near Ischia, Italy, where unusual shallow-water volcanic vents in the floor of the Mediterranean Sea bubble carbon dioxide into the water, creating a local underwater neighborhood that may resemble the ocean of the future.
