Das andere CO2-Problem - Ozeanversauerung: 8 Experimente für Schüler und Lehrer (Download pdf in German, 2 MB, in cooperation with Project Bioacid)

Worksheets (in German):

To complement the experiment descriptions above, Dr. Ulf Schweckendiek (SINUS-Programm, Schleswig-Holstein) developed worksheets for pupils (Word-Docs, 1,3 MB each):

"Was ändert den CO2-Gehalt der Luft?"Logo SINUS
(experiments with a CO2-sensor in the class room)

"Wie kann der Ozean CO2 aufnehmen?"
(acidification of surface waters by CO2-input)

"Wie kann CO2 von der Oberfläche abtransportiert werden?"
(experiment on convection in the physical pump)

"Kaltes oder warmes Wasser - die ideale CO2-Aufnahme"
(experiments with effervescent tablets)

"Wie können Wasserpflanzen CO2 aufnehmen?"
(experiments with the plant Cabomba)

"Kleinste Wasserpflanzen als Klimaretter?"
(phytoplankton at work)

These materials and the corresponding measurement instruments are part of SINUS aktivBOX "CO2 im Ozean".
