    Solving corrosive ocean mystery reveals our future climate

    Around 55 million years ago, an abrupt global warming event triggered a highly corrosive deep-water current to flow through the North Atlantic Ocean.  The current's origin puzzled scientists for a decade, but with the help of NCI’s supercomputer, an international team of researchers has now discovered how it formed. The findings, published in Nature Geoscience, 12 May, may have implications for the carbon dioxide emission sensitivity of today's climate.The researchers explored the acidification of the ocean that occurred during a period known ...
