- In this session, participants focus on ocean acidification. They compare global atmospheric CO2 collected at Mauna Loa, HI (i.e., the Keeling Curve) with measurements of CO2 and pH collected in Washington State, and recognize that global change is evident in localized places. They come to understand that data can be used to reveal both small-spatial scale and global patterns; carbon dioxide is increasing over time and this is observed in the atmosphere and waters. Participants are given an overview of ocean acidification and how different organisms are afected.
