    About This Project

    As atmospheric carbon dioxide increases, the pH of the ocean will decrease and corals will suffer. This project aims to determine if corals can acclimate to future ocean pH changes by studying corals living at submarine springs in Mexico where they have been exposed to low pH for hundreds of years. If we're successful, we'll identify how corals can protect themselves from ocean acidification and design strategies to preserve coral reefs.
