Special Issue: The Future of Ocean Biogeochemistry in a High-CO2 World

On the Cover: Photos: Time sequence of shell dissolution of the Antarctic pteropod Limacina helicina in waters simulating the saturation state of surface seawater with respect to aragonite that is projected for the Southern Ocean (from Orr et al., 2005, doi:10.1038/nature04095) by 2100 under the IS92a business-as-usual CO2 emissions scenario. The photos in this sequence were taken from March 31, 2007–May 15, 2007 in the laboratory of Victoria Fabry. Photo credit: David Liittschwager, National Geographic Stock. Background: Changes in atmospheric CO2, seawater pCO2, and pH near Hawaii. See Feely et al. on page 36 for details.
