Investigation of the carbonate chemistry of two tide pools on San Juan Island
Open ocean observations have shown that increasing levels of anthropogenically-derived atmospheric CO2 are causing acidification of the world’s oceans. Yet little is known about coastal acidification and very few studies have characterized the carbonate chemistry of coastal zones or intertidal rock pools where many calcifying ...
Spatial and Temporal Variability in Carbonate Chemistry in San Juan Archipelago
This is the first study that characterizes the carbonate parameters in the Salish Sea surrounding the San Juan Archipelago. Water samples were collected from 9 sites on multiple days and analyzed for total alkalinity and dissolved inorganic carbon. Results show high spatial and temporal variability in carbonated parameters. ...
