The effects of anthropogenic activities on the biosphere including climate change and Ocean acidification The ocean absorbs around 30% of carbon dioxide (CO2) released to the atmosphere as a result of human activities. As CO2 dissolves in seawater, it forms carbonic acid, decreasing the ocean’s pH. This is called ocean acidification. The acidity of the ocean has increased by 26% since the beginning of the industrial era. In at least 2 pages , define anthropogenic activities, describe how such activities can have a negative effect on ocean acidification and climate change, and provide some solutions to overcome these issues. 25 – 30 points Met learning outcome 10:Understand the effects of anthropogenic activities on the biosphere including climate change and Ocean acidification and answered all the questions on the prompt and properly cited from acceptable sources.
