Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since the industrial revolution, human activities have led to emissions of CO2, which not only affect the atmosphere, but also the hydrosphere. Ocean acidification occurs as a direct consequence of these emissions and leads to a perturbation of the seawater carbonate system including a decrease in pH. Current research demonstrates that ocean acidification has the potential to significantly affect marine species, ecosystems and associated services.  However, addressing the impact of ocean acidification requires filling some key scientific gaps, such as the role of local adaptation, natural variability, combination with other environmental stressors, long-term and evolutionary processes, as well as ecological interactions. This Special Issue will focus on those gaps with a strong focus on solutions and actions.
