  • BAS science cruise leader and a co-author of the paper, Dr Geraint Tarling, says "upwelling sites are natural phenomena that occur throughout the Southern Ocean" but adds his belief that "instances where they bring the 'saturation horizon' above 200m will become more frequent as ocean acidification intensifies in the coming years.
