Cliff LawOcean Acidification
Cliff Law is a Principal Scientist in the Ocean-Atmosphere Group at NIWA, with broad research interests in the interactions between ocean biota and marine and atmospheric chemistry. One research area focuses on the influence of climate change and ocean acidification on microbial production and biodiversity in the surface ocean. Current research projects investigate the impact of ocean acidification on carbonate-forming plankton, and on bacterial degradation of organic matter. He has also recently developed a NZ Climate Change Atlas for the Oceans with Phil Boyd in the NIWA Centre of Excellence in the Dept Chemistry, University of Otago.
