Ocean acidification

A Guide To Climate Change Impacts, On Scotland’s Historic Environment, published by Historic Environment Scotland in October 2019, defines ocean acidification as: ‘a term used to describe significant changes to the chemistry of the ocean. It occurs when carbon dioxide gas (or CO) is absorbed by the ocean and reacts with seawater to produce acid.'
