Ocean Acidification, the other CO2 problem: How far will life resist?
EPOCA, the European Project on Ocean Acidification and CarboSchools, promoting teacher-scientist partnerships about global change research, has released a new 8-page educational leaflet introducing Ocean Acidification research challenges to teachers of all levels and subjects.
The leaflet gives an overview of what we know and do not know about Ocean Acidification and introduces how a major experiment in the Arctic in May 2009 and May 2010 will progress our understanding. The prime goal is to help teachers and scientists to get started with collaborative projects, including through the follow-up of Arctic research through a blog project associated with physical meetings.
