Increased CO2 enhances plankton growth - Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences

"The results show both the power of long-term time-series of ocean observations for deciphering how marine microbial communities are responding to climate change and offer evidence that the ocean garden is changing," said Dr. William Balch, senior research scientist at Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences and a co-author of the paper.
"We never expected to see the relative abundance of coccolithophores to increase 10 times in the North Atlantic over barely half a century. If anything, we expected that these sensitive calcifying algae would have decreased in the face of increasing ocean acidification (associated with increasing carbon dioxide entering the ocean from the burning of fossil-fuels). Instead, we see how these carbon-limited organisms appear to be using the extra carbon from CO[2] to increase their relative abundance by an order of magnitude. "This provides one example on how marine communities across an entire ocean basin are responding to increasing carbon dioxide levels. Such real-life examples of the impact of increasing CO[2] on marine food webs are important to point out as the world comes together in Paris next week at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change," Balch added. The results presented here are consistent with this and may portend, like the "canary in the coal mine," where we are headed climatologically," said Balch. In addition to Balch, her co-authors were Anand Gnanadesikan of John Hopkins, Carlos E. Del Castillo of NASA, and Seth D. Guikema of the University of Michigan. ######

According to William M. Balch of the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences in Maine, a co-author of the study, scientisits have long expected that increasing ocean acidification acidity due to higher carbon dioxide would suppress these chalk-shelled organisms.
The new study shows, it didn't. "Coccolithophores have been typically more abundant during Earth's warm interglacial and high CO2 periods," said Balch.
