Ocean acidification could lead to collapse of coral reefs

An expedition from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Carnegie Institute of Science has measured a roughly 40% reduction in the rate of calcium carbonate deposited in Australia's Great Barrier Reef in the last 35 ...

Coral's durability to acidification examined

An international team of coral biologists has been examining coral's ability to colonise new substrates and repair damaged reefs as oceans become more acidic.

Study finds coral reefs under even greater threat

In a landmark study, scientists at The University of Queensland (UQ) have simulated future ocean conditions and found climate change will jeopardise the future of coral reefs.
