Sea Changes Start?

Sea Changes Start?

Finally, the predictions of scientists have started coming true one by one. Years back, a team of scientists figured out that the change in ocean chemistry may first affect the group of tiny snail-like sea creatures that are crucial to marine food webs, which has turned out true as a new research performed by Seattle scientists is showing that pteropods i. e. a tiny snail-like sea creature crucial to marine food webs, have started getting damaged.

Concerns of the experts have gone bit higher as the reported damage has occurred decades earlier than as was expected by ocean acidification, the souring of seas from human-caused carbon-dioxide emissions.

According to the details of the predictions made, researchers suggested that pteropods, shelled animals known as sea butterflies, could begin dissolving by the year 2038 probably due to the human-caused carbon-dioxide emissions that could sour the seas in a process known as ocean acidification.

The same fact has now been concluded by the Seattle scientists, as their research has proved that corrosive seas have started proving harmful for pteropods. The evidences of damage have been recorded in the South Atlantic Ocean, where surface pH doesn't dip as low as it has off the Washington coast or in Puget Sound.
