National Academies Advisory: March 5 lecture on ocean acidification

Most carbon dioxide emissions are absorbed by the ocean, where the gas reacts with seawater to form carbonic acid that can dissolve the shells and skeletons of marine organisms, including corals. At the eighth annual Roger Revelle Commemorative Lecture, Ken Caldeira from the Carnegie Institution will address this topic in a discussion entitled "WHAT CORALS ARE DYING TO TELL US ABOUT C02 AND OCEAN ACIDIFICATION." The lecture, presented by the National Research Council's Ocean Studies Board, will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, March 5, in the Baird Auditorium of the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, 10th Street and Constitution Avenue, N.W. To register, go to www.dels.nas.edu/osb/about_revelle or contact Nancy Caputo at tel. 202-334-2273.
