The human impact on our oceans

It seems unimaginable that humans could alter the chemistry of the world’s oceans. But scientists at mote marine laboratories in Sarasota, Florida are researching how we have altered the pH of oceans and estuaries. This segment is part of an ongoing public media reporting initiative called Peril and Promise, our ongoing series of reports on the human impact of, and solutions for, climate change. Lead funding is provided by P. Roy Vagelos and Diana T. Vagelos. Major support is provided by The Marc Haas Foundation and Sue and Edgar Wachenheim III.
