Description

CO2 Acidification in Aquatic Ecosystems: An integrative approach to Risk Assessment focuses on the characterization of different aspects of ecosystem science to describe the situation of CO2 acidification in aquatic ecosystems. This extensive coverage looks at the effects of CO2 acidification throughout all oceans and coastal areas. In addition, the book describes integrative approaches based on global case studies to determine the effects associated with this kind of acidification. It allows the reader to understand the different sources of CO2 in the aquatic ecosystems and the different approaches and lines of evidence available to characterize the impact of this acidification.

CO2 Acidification in Aquatic Ecosystems presents different methods for integrating these lines of evidence to determine a correct risk assessment. Furthermore, this risk assessment will be used to feed up the correct risk management and how it can be used to determine the legal and economic consequences of different sources of CO2 acidification in the aquatic ecosystem. In this context, the book will also include different emerging topics related to CO2 acidification in aquatic ecosystems and that are not as well known, but are extremely telling and important. This book provides researchers, professors and post graduate students in oceanography and aquatic ecology with a new and complete tool set to address and understand the potential impacts of CO2 acidification in aquatic ecosystems.

Key Features

  • Presents case studies and new data related to the CO2 acidification in aquatic ecosystems
  • Includes new approaches for understanding the behavior of the organisms in aquatic ecosystems that are suffering stress from different sources of contamination at acidification conditions
  • Provides an integrated approach to address the environmental quality in areas affected by acidification and contamination by other stressors

Readership

Marine (coastal and ocean) environmental sciences and freshwater ecologists. Environmental engineers and policy makers
