Happy #WorldOceansDay! What do carbon emissions have to do with seashells? Increased carbon dioxide in the air changes the chemistry of our oceans by making them more acidic. Seashells and coral contain a mineral called calcium carbonate. This is the same chemical in chewable antacid tablets. Changes to ocean chemistry affect the amount of calcium carbonate in our waters. Coral and shellfish need a delicate balance of this chemical to survive.
Want to observe this effect using materials you already have at home? Check out the activity, “Seashells: Antacids of the Ocean,” in the 2018 issue of #CelebratingChemistry from #CCEW at www.acs.org/celebratingchemistry. Don’t be shellfish, and help sustainably protect our oceans!
