Ocean acidification exacerbated by emissions from ships on major shipping routes - 08 Jun 2016 (via JRC)

The theme of the 2016 World Oceans Day celebrated on 8 June is “Healthy Oceans, Healthy Planet". The day coincides with the official publication of a new JRC study simulating the impact of SO2 emissions from ships on ocean acidification.The modelling study found that along major shipping lanes, sulphur dioxide (SO2) emissions from ships can further ocean acidification with a rate that is twofold with respect to that caused by carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
