Mountains are the result of tectonic forces pushing the crust upward and erosion tearing some of that crust down. As carbon dioxide is absorbed into the water, it is converted to carbonic acid, which then acidifies and thus lowers the pH of the ocean. Unlike traditional alphabet collections with photographs of architectural details, the letters in the Words From The Sea gallery are created naturally by the ocean.

By weight, both table salt and sea salt contain about the same amount of sodium chloride. It explores the phenomenon of ocean acidification and explains why even small changes to ocean chemistry could have profound implications for marine life and future economic activities. This apparent contradiction has prompted a lot of speculation in the media and by scientists in recent years.

In 2011, in San Francisco—a city surrounded by water on three sides—I gathered a group of neuroscientists, cognitive psychologists, marine biologists, artists, conservationists, doctors, economists, athletes, urban planners, real estate agents, and chefs to explore the ways our brains, bodies, and psyches are enhanced by water.

At 550 feet it was only 5 feet 6 inches shorter than the Washington Monument in Washington, D. Some of this water gets cycled back out of the mantle, but some gets trapped deep within it. "It has been known for a long time that subducting plates carry oceanic water to the mantle," said Tom Garth, a PhD student in the Earthquake Seismology research group at Liverpool. "We found that fault zones that form in the deep oceanic trench offshore Northern Japan persist to depths of up to 150 kilometers," Garth said. "These hydrated fault zones can carry large amounts of water, suggesting that subduction zones carry much more water from the ocean down to the mantle than has previously been suggested," Garth said. "This supports the theory that there are large amounts of water stored deep in the Earth."
