Variations in Tide Pool Carbonate Chemistry and Temperature
Tide pools are known to have extreme variations in both their temperature and carbonate chemistry while they are isolated from the surrounding waters. These extreme environments provide an interesting view into how organisms are able to cope with large variations in temperature, pH and total carbon. The knowledge of how ...
THE TALE OF TWO TIDEPOOLS: EXAMINING CARBONATE CHEMISTRY IN THE INTERTIDAL
Tidepools are a prominent feature of the intertidal zone, housing a great diversity of both macroalgae and mobile animal components. Tidepool organisms are exposed to wide variations in temperature, salinity, and pH over the course of the low tide. As of yet, very few studies have quantified the changes in carbonate chemistry ...
