Visual signs of climate change and human impact on oceans
Posted 09 April 2010 - 04:05 AM
In mainstream media it would seem there is a lot of focus on the very obvious effects climate change will have on human beings in low laying countries such as Bangladesh. But I have a feeling that since what is below the waters surface isn't obvious and direct, it is very much forgotten. Yet so many people depend on the oceans to survive.
Hoping to do a project on this I would be greatful if anyone has information to share on the following:
- first hand experience seeing the effects of either climate change or adverse human activity in specific (underwater) locations (preferably possible to photograph)
- names of institutions or professionals that work with this.

This article has a nice example of young bivalves whose shells are weakened by a decrease in pH.
