SUMMER CLIMATE ACADEMY: Acidification of New Jersey’s Ocean & Coastal Waters

As human activities increase the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, the amount taken up by the ocean also increases, causing ocean pH to decrease. Join Rutgers’ Grace Saba, Janine Barr, and Jeanne Herb, along with representatives from the NJDEP, to find out how we monitor the pH levels in the ocean and what impact ocean acidification has on NJ’s natural resources? Discuss ongoing efforts on how we can work with other states to better prepare for the impacts of a more acidic ocean environment.
