This case study intends to evaluate freshman students understanding of the scientific method. As an effort of incorporating new topics into the college-level curriculum, the following case study will explore the topic of ocean acidification within the sustainability context. This case was used on a Introduction to Chemistry class and can be use as necessary in any natural science or other appropriate disciplines.
This case study is based partially in the article: Hall-Spencer J.M., et. al. Volcanic carbon dioxide vents show ecosystem effects of ocean acidification. Nature Letters , 1-4 (2008). doi:10.1038/nature07051. In addition, other resources were put together to simplify the socio-environmental systems for the students.
