This resource features an experiential learning approach that examines the effects of global warming on marine environments. Students apply introductory acid-base theory (including conjugate acids/bases and buffers) in an experiment to simulate ocean acidification resulting from the absorption of atmospheric carbon dioxide. They then discuss the implications of their findings. As a culminating activity, students read a scientific article describing the toll of global warming on coral reefs and reflect on the scientific processes used to gather information on the impacts of climate change on this habitat.
This resource will provide an effective tool for bringing real-world relevance to chemistry lessons involving acid-base reactions, pH, and buffer systems. It is especially appropriate for use in a high school classroom studying the ways that global warming is affecting ocean ecosystems and the consequences of changing PH levels for marine habitats.
