Ocean Acidification Makes it Harder for Corals to Build Skeletons
A new study published Jan. 29 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) shows how ocean acidification makes it harder for corals to build their skeletons. The study is based on research by scientists at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution who extracted core samples from corals near Palau. Their work details the effects of acidification and will allow better predictions of coral vulnerability.
