Alex Hall, UCLA professor of atmospheric and oceanic sciences and director of the Center for Climate Change Solutions, received a 2016 Atmospheric Sciences Ascent Award from the American Geophysical Union (AGU).
Determining the exact effects of ocean acidification on shellfish has proven difficult, however. Though plummeting pH levels have been blamed for shellfish die-offs, the correlations have appeared inconsistent.
New research suggests the response of shellfish to ocean acidification is dependent on a number of other environmental stressors.
In a study of California mussels, researchers at the University
In a unique offering believed to be the first and only university course of its kind, UC Santa Barbara English scholar Ken Hiltner has created and launched a class examining climate change through the lens of literature. Read more
A new study, based on the most extensive set of measurements ever made in tide pools, suggests that ocean acidification will increasingly put many marine organisms at risk by exacerbating normal changes in ocean chemistry that occur overnight. Read more
