Space is key to monitoring ocean acidification

The use of satellites has not yet been thoroughly explored as an option for routinely observing ocean surface chemistry, but a paper published by member of the OceanSODA team in the journal Remote Sensing of Environment describes how scientists are testing new ways of merging different datasets to estimate and ultimately monitor ocean acidification.
