Caption: Globe centred on the Atlantic Ocean showing average ocean alkalinity (the ability of a solution to neutralise acids) between 2010 and 2014. The most alkaline areas are pink, with alkalinity decreasing through red, yellow and green to blue. More than a quarter of the carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed by the oceans, causing them to become more acidic. Data acquired by ESA's SMOS (Soil Moisture Ocean Salinity) satellite.
