Gore, S.; Renforth, P.; Perkins, R. (2018): The potential environmental response to increasing ocean alkalinity for negative emissions. In: Mitig Adapt Strat Glob Change 47 (1), S. 199. DOI: 10.1007/s11027-018-9830-z.

„Increasing TA, however, did not significantly influence Corallina spp. primary productivity, respiration, or photophysiology. These results show that AOA may not be intrinsically detrimental for Corallina spp. and that AOA has the potential to lessen the impacts of ocean acidification. However, the experiment tested a single species within a controlled environment to constrain a specific unknown, the rate change of calcification, and additional work is required to understand the impact of AOA on other organisms, whole ecosystems, and the global carbon cycle.“
