Sea Change: Ocean Acidification in the Pacific

An important piece of journalism brings to light the almost insurmountable threats to marine life by ocean acidification.

Sea Change is the result of months of research by photographer Steve Ringman and reporter Craig Welch, who traveled from Dutch Harbor, Alaska, in the North Pacific to Papua New Guinea in the South Pacific to detail what is at stake as ocean chemistry changes.

Read, watch, and discuss their research and adventures detailing the Pacific's Perilous Turn.

Additional installments of the series will explore the ability of marine species to adapt to acidification, the future of food in fish-dependent cultures, and what can be done to stem the marine world’s decline. Stay tuned as we follow the results and impact of this important publication.
