Carbon dioxide scrubbers like those that clean the air in space stations. Precision monitors and instruments. Industrial parts used in wastewater treatment.
Michael Maher’s job was to assemble the pieces into one of the most sophisticated ocean acidification simulation systems yet developed. Ocean acidification is the decrease in ocean pH due to its absorption of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere – carbon dioxide forms an acid when it dissolves in water.
