Study the Science: Chemical Oceanography

The primary objective of the ocean acidification program is to describe spatial, seasonal and interannual variability in the marine carbon cycle to assess the extent and potential impacts of ocean acidification. Secondarily, data are obtained via CTD (conductivity-temperature-depth) casts that will better characterize how much of a sink the Chukchi Sea provides for atmospheric CO2. These data will be critical to long-term projections of how the Arctic Ocean will respond under future climate scenarios.

Interesting Fact:
Ocean acidification in one of the most multidisciplinary fields in marine science encompassing chemistry, physics, geology, biology, and economics.
