Ocean Acidification Visualization

Carbon Program at NOAA Pacific Marine Environment Laboratory

An educator might use this resource to:

to show the change in surface ocean pH over time as well as the forecast of ocean pH if we continue emitting fossil fuels at the current rate. The video is a good engagement piece to begin thinking about the pH scale and the effect of acidifying waters on coral.

Resource type: Data visualization

Relationship of dissolved carbon dioxide and oxygen from the NOAA PMEL buoy at Wired Pier

Wired Pier at Exploratorium

An educator might use this resource to:

demonstrate the inverse relationship between the percentage of dissolved carbon dioxide and oxygen saturation in the waters off of Pier 15 in the San Francisco Bay. The graph can be used for a data story activity where students use their knowledge of ocean acidification to predict the relationship between “the characters” of dissolved carbon dioxide (CO2) and oxygen as they fluctuate through time or “the plot.”

Resource type: Data
