Ocean acidification is likely to have substantial ecological and economic consequences globally. In this article, we provide a toolbox for understanding and addressing the drivers of ocean acidification.
On May 4, a group of trekkers arrived at San Gregorio Beach after hiking roughly 22 miles from the Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve for "Stanford to the Sea," an annual walk punctuated by talks from Stanford experts such as the Center's Meg Caldwell.
The Southwest's average daily temperatures in 2001 to 2010 were the region's highest for any decade since 1900, says a new report coordinated by University of Arizona researchers. The 500-page report on Southwest climate change was prepared by 120 scientists around the West and the nation, with five UA researchers as lead editors.
A newly published scientific assessment of climate change in the Southwest brings together the work of 120 contributors in a single book that examines emerging climate trends, future projections and effects on water supplies, communities, agriculture, ecosystems and more.
Stanford scientists have determined that some purple sea urchins residing along the coast of California and Oregon have the surprising ability to rapidly evolve in acidic ocean water – a capacity that may come in handy as climate change increases ocean acidity.
In the wake of Superstorm Sandy and other natural disasters, will Americans prepare and invest to minimize the impact of disasters, or deal with storms and rising sea levels after they occur? A new survey commissioned by COS and Stanford Woods reveals the nation's attitude.
A study of sea urchins, co-authored by Stephen Palumbi, a professor in marine sciences and the director of Stanford's Hopkins Marine Station, reveals previously unknown adaptive variations that could help some marine species survive in future acidified seas.
