Scott Doney

The Ocean's Acid Test

In early August, WHOI marine biogeochemist Scott Doney spoke at a public event on ocean acidification, a problem arising from the burning of fossil fuels and the subsequent increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. To understand and sort the impacts of ocean acidification, Doney uses numerical models and satellite observations, as well as data analyses, laboratory research, and sea-going efforts. He also recently contributed to a new comprehensive index designed to assess the benefits to people of healthy oceans worldwide. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
