This volume presents an interdisciplinary overview of the role of the oceans as a carbon sink and its relation with pH increasing trends and climate change. It provides an updated synthesis of current concerns related to global change trends in the oceans with a strong emphasis on acidification.
Introduction.- 1 Climate variability in the north-western Iberian Peninsula during the last deglaciation.- 2 Impact of Oporto Metropolitan Area carbon dioxide emissions over the adjacent coastal zone.- 3 Present day carbon dioxide fluxes in the coastal ocean and possible feedbacks under global change.- 4 Aspects of phytoplankton communities response to climate changes.- 5 pH decrease and effects on the chemistry of seawater .- 6 Effects of sediment acidification on the bioaccumulation of Zn in R. Philippinarum.-; 7 Contaminant cycling under climate change: Evidences and scenarios.- 8 The use of weight of evidence for environmental quality assessment in sediments above sub-seabed geological formations for the storage of carbon dioxide.- Conclusions.- Index
