Global ocean acidification patterns

I am focusing my postdoctoral research at IPRC on developing a better understanding of large-scale patterns of future ocean acidification, with a special focus on the Southern Ocean and the Equatorial Pacific. This project involves conducting experimental simulations with the Community Earth System Model (http://www2.cesm.ucar.edu/). Using this global model allows me to study the combined effects of ocean acidification and climate change on the marine carbon dynamics.
