Carbon emissions linked to disintegration of seafloor

Excess carbon from human activity is affecting the seafloor, causing it to dissolve, according to findings published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Scientists looked at data about currents, calcium carbonate in sediments, salinity and temperature to measure the possible rate of dissolution globally, concluding that changes in "the geological record of the deep sea" will occur.
