Carbon dioxide addition to coral reef waters suppresses net community calcification

Carbon dioxide addition to coral reef waters suppresses net community calcification, Published online: 14 March 2018; doi:10.1038/nature25968

In situ carbon dioxide enrichment experiments show that ocean acidification poses a threat to coral reefs by reducing the saturation state of aragonite and the concentration of carbonate ions and that this impairs community calcification. http://feeds.nature.com/nature/rss/current via https://www.nature.com/articles/nature25968
