The Power of pH: Changing Ocean Chemistry
Did you know that driving 2,500 miles results in an entire ton of carbon emissions added to the atmosphere? This tidbit and others on how carbon dioxide is also increasing in ocean water are the focus of a powerful lesson. Participants are introduced to ocean acidification with a video, and then they carry out two investigations that will reveal the increasing pH of the world's oceans.
