Ocean Acidification - Effects of melting glaciers are part of PWS research
Ocean scientists who have been studying Prince William Sound for the past five years are hoping to determine by fall the maximum distribution of glacial melt water and its impact on the saturation state of carbonate minerals.
Ocean chemistry: Fingerprints of a trace nutrient
Lack of dissolved iron in the sea limits biological productivity and the uptake of carbon dioxide. The sources of dissolved iron in the North Atlantic Ocean have been identified from isotopic variations of this trace nutrient.
Scientists in focus - Lyman and Johnson explore the rapidly warming oceans
With 93% of global warming going into the oceans, Lyman and Johnson's research is critical to climate change.

Sea Change: Vital part of food web dissolving
Scientists have documented that souring seas caused by CO2 emissions are dissolving pteropods, a key marine food source. The research raises questions about what other sea life might be affected.
