10.07.55   soundbite (English) Jan Büdenbender saying: "What we are
           seeing here is a pteropod which can be found in the polar
           oceans. This is basically a winged snail producing a carbonate
           shell which is our main interest since we are fearing that the
           present ocean acidification may make it difficult for them to
           produce their shell and maybe also dissolute the shell."
10.08.20   similar soundbite in German
10.08.44   soundbite (English) Jan Büdenbender saying: "If pteropods
           would face real big problems by ocean acidification and would
           disappear from the Arctic ecosystems, this probably means that
           the whole community will change in their species composition.
           Also, affecting higher organisms feeding on these organisms."

10.11.02   BOARD: "Soundbites. Prof. Ulf Riebesell, marine scientist IFM-
           GEOMAR. Ny Alesund - Svalbard. May 30th 2010."
10.11.06   soundbite (English) Prof. Ulf Riebesell saying: "So what we see
           here on the pier are the floating devices of what we call
           mesocosms. They are used to enclose large bodies of water
           with all the organisms in there and we will use them to study
           ocean acidification and the effects it has on marine organisms."
10.11.22   similar soundbite in German
10.11.44   soundbite (English) Prof. Ulf Riebesell saying: "So the
           mesocosms will be deployed here in Kongsfjord, they will be
           anchored and then they will be lowered to fifteen metres of
           water, they enclose a large body of water with all the organisms
           in there. Once that has been done, they will be CO2 enriched.
           So we add CO2 to those water columns to reach levels that are
           projected to occur in 20 years, 40 years, 60 years from now and
           so on. And then we will just observe what the enclosed
           community does over a period of five to six weeks and we would
           like to see the reponses of the community to ocean
10.12.21   similar soundbite in German
10.12.49   soundbite (English) Prof. Ulf Riebesell saying: "Well the oceans
           are acidifying. They have basically been acidifying since human

           beings have been emitting CO2 into the atmosphere. And we
           can measure this. We can measure that the ocean has already
           acidified by 0.1 pH units which does not sound like very much
           but if you look at the increase in acidity because of that it has
           increased by thirty percent already. We know if we continue to
           emit CO2 at the rate that we are presently doing, the ocean will
           be acidified by another 100 percent well before the end of this
           century. And this is by far beyond what organisms have
           experienced in their evolutionary history for at least the last 20
           million years."
10.13.30   similar soundbite in German
10.14.12   soundbite (English) Prof. Ulf Riebesell saying: "Well we know
           that all calcifying organisms are likely to suffer from ocean
           acidification. You can easily think of the most prominent
           calcifiers which are thecorals. If we think of coral reefs losing
           their structure, the erosion being higher than the new growth
           which will slowly develop - we are going in that direction already
           - then you can imagine what losses this will be. I mean we are
           losing not only the immense biodiversity of the coral reefs - they
           are in fact the most biodiverse ecosystem we have in the ocean
           - we are also losing the protection of coastlines, we are losing
           the fishing that goes along with coral reefs. We are losing the
           tourism that is directly tied to coral reefs. So that's just one
           example of where an ecosystem may be lost and we will have
           other ecosystems which will suffer equally just by losing vital
           components of them - mainly the calcifying organisms - and they
           may be replaced by others, possibly even ending up with much
           lower trophic levels so we really lose not only the biodiversity but
           potentially also the use of ecosystems to humans. "
