Corals and Ocean Acidification

13 November 2020

This is a video demonstration of how corals build the skeletons that make up reefs and how this process is affected by climate change.

In this activity we will show how corals alter their internal pH to produce a mineral and then we show how increasing seawater CO2 affects this process.
