Dealing with ocean acidification

Ambio article looks at how legal, political, and economic structures in society are contributing to ocean acidification and how society has responded to its impacts.


The ocean is one of our greatest carbon sinks. It removes excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, though at the cost of making the ocean more acidic. While we know that ocean acidification is a problem, we know less about how society is driving this environmental change, and how we can respond to it.

In an Ambio review article, centre researchers Anne-Sophie Crépin, Max Troell, Victor Galaz, and colleagues address the societal causes of, and responses to, ocean acidification.
