NOAA awards more than $1.3 million to predict coastal acidification impacts to commercial species and vulnerable habitats
Description: NOAA has awarded more than $1.3 million to three universities for research on how economically and ecologically important marine species and coastal habitats are affected by ocean acidification. The research that comes from these awards will tell scientists how the chemistry of the coastal ocean is changing, where these changes will be most acute, and what the effects of those changes will be on marine animals and habitats. It will also help coastal communities plan for these changing conditions. [Source: NOAA News]
