Ocean acidification

What is ocean acidification? I have the term in my notes, but not the definition lol whoops :flushed:

It’s in unit 9 so i wouldn’t worry too much about it. Just know CO2 and other pollutants make the ocean more acidic which can affect coral reefs and other organisms which narrow ranges of tolerances.
