Engineering Design Challenge

In this lab experience, students are challenged to demonstrate the relationship between carbon cycling and ocean acidification as well as the effects acidification has on coral reef formation. Students determine and demonstrate that there is an inverse relationship between the amount of dissolved CO2 in seawater and pH. Students also determine and demonstrate that the solubility of Ca(OH)2, a main component of coral reefs, increases as the amount of CO2 dissolved in seawater increases.
