Calcifying Marine Invertebrates “Living in the Future”: How are they doing in the real-world Depths of pH Hell?
The Ability of Coral Reefs to Regenerate after Catastrophic Events: Can they come back from a “double whammy,” such as that provided by concomitant ocean warming and acidification?
Coral Disease-Induced Growth Anomalies: What Causes Them?: An analysis of over 900 surveys conducted across the Indo-Pacific region provides the answer.
Twentieth-Century Growth Rates of Florida (USA) Corals: How big a “hit” have they taken from the combined effects of “unprecedented” oceanic warming and acidification?
Ocean Acidification and the Velvet Swimming Crab: Can the “devil” crab cope with the pH Hell climate alarmists claim is coming?
Will Ocean Acidification — If It Occurs — Affect Marine Microbes?: Well, will it?
Elevated CO2 and Early Life Stages of Mediterranean Sea Urchins: How does the former affect the latter?
Ocean Acidification Database
The latest addition of peer-reviewed data archived to our database of marine organism responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment is Collector urchin [Tripneustes gratilla]. To access the entire database, click here.
Plant Growth Database
Our latest results of plant growth responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment obtained from experiments described in the peer-reviewed scientific literature are: Alder (Tobita et al., 2010) and Sand Sedge (Drigo et al., 2009).
Medieval Warm Period Project
Was there a Medieval Warm Period? YES, according to data published by 967 individual scientists from 560 research institutions in 43 different countries … and counting! This issue’s Medieval Warm Period Record comes from Jämtland, Central Scandinavian Mountains, Sweden. To access the entire Medieval Warm Period Project’s database, click here.
World Temperatures Database
Back by popular demand and upgraded to allow patrons more choices to plot and view the data, we reintroduce the World Temperatures section of our website. Here, users may plot temperatures for the entire globe or regions of the globe. A newly added feature allows patrons the ability to plot up to six independent datasets on the same graph. Try it today. World Temperatures Database.
Carbon Dioxide and Earth’s Future: Pursuing the Prudent Path: Ten of the more ominous model-based predictions of what will occur in response to continued business-as-usual anthropogenic CO2 emissions are compared against real-world observations. (co2science.org)
