Can Squid Abide Ocean's Lower pH?
To most people, squid are calamari—delicious when fried. But to WHOI researchers Max Kaplan and Aran Mooney, squid are another reason to be concerned about ocean acidification.

Scallops Under Stress
Like other marine species, scallops face multiple climate change-related problems. Summer Student Fellow Cailan Sugano studied how scallops respond to acidification and lack of food—and whether extra food can help them resist damage due to more acidic seawater.

For Sharks, the Nose Knows
WHOI researchers study how sharks use their senses to hunt, recalculate a more precise depth and volume of the ocean, revisit the Titanic wreck site, and help search for undersea wreckage of Air France Flight 447, which crashed off South America.

Ocean Acidification: A Risky Shell Game
As the oceans continue to absorb excess carbon dioxide from the air, seawater chemistry will change, possibly hindering the ability of marine life to build their carbonate shells and skeletons. But will corals, clams, snails, or lobsters all be affected in the same way?
