ACID REEFS

OCEAN ACIDIFICATION – THE OTHER PROBLEM OF CORAL REEFS !

Maintaining marine biodiversity is a major challenge as coral reefs are home to more than a third of the world’s marine biodiversity. Unfortunately, the consequences of climate change (e.g. ocean acidification) are real threats to marine biodiversity.

The overall objective of ACID REEFS is to better understand the response of coral reefs to ocean acidification through an integrated approach. ACID REEFS is lead by Dr. Laetitia Hédouin (CNRS) from the Center for Island Research and Environment Observatory in Moorea.
