NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship: Will ocean acidification increase the toxicity of chronic coastal pollutants?

University of Exeter

Using a combination of aquarium based experiments and field work, this studentship will build on this previous research to examine OA pollutant interactions over a range of priority pollutants and pharmaceuticals expected to be pH sensitive within the OA range. It will also examine the role of organisms’ natural exposure to varying pH within their natural habitats in determining their sensitivities to combined OA-pollutant exposures.
