Ocean acidification is a phenomenon based
on the ongoing decrease in pH of the Earth's oceans, some cause's related
to this are the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by the oceans. A relative
timescale would be from 1751-1994 during which surface ocean pH is estimated to have decreased by ~0.075.
regarding this problem is brought to the anthropogenic causes of CO2 emissions to the atmosphere. The
majority of this website will concentrate on that fact, while pointing out other causes as well.
