CO<sub>2</sub> is absorbed from the air by ocean water, acidifying the water and thus reducing the ability of juvenile clams to grow their shells. As seen in the photos, where CO<sub>2</sub> levels rise progressively from left to right, 36-day-old clams (measured in microns) grown under elevated CO<sub>2</sub> levels are smaller than those grown under lower CO<sub>2</sub> levels. The highest CO<sub>2</sub> level, about 1500 parts per million (ppm; far right), is higher than most projections for the end of this century but could occur locally in some estuaries.
