Dr. Stephen C. Jameson inquired about the interactive effects of ocean
acidification and warming of the oceans on coral calcification.  Last year¹s
Royal Society (UK) report, Ocean Acidification Due to Increasing Atmospheric
Carbon Dioxide ( http://www.royalsoc.ac.uk/document.asp?id=3249 ) addresses
this in section 4.2.1, pages 25-26. According to this report, tropical coral
reefs (and probably cold water coral reefs) will be negatively impacted.
