One Key to Climate Change Turnaround Eyed in Antarctic Ocean

University of Delaware

New research could lead to the kind of drastic changes demanded in the UN's climate change report. The study says winds in the Antarctic Ocean strengthen during the austral summer and surface waters acidify faster than can be accounted for by increases in carbon dioxide from the atmosphere alone.
