Hello all,

I would like to bring your attention to a recent article we published 
regarding the acidification of coral reefs and biogeochemical feedbacks 
within these ecosystems.  A compilation of pCO2 data from coral reefs 
since the 1960s shows they reefs are acidifying ~3.5-times faster than 
the open ocean.  Using a model we demonstrate that modest changes to the 
metabolic processes of coral reefs from regional anthropogenic 
perturbations could explain this trend.  The link to the article is below.
