About: Impacts of Ocean Acidification on Coral Reefs and Other Marine Calcifiers (pdf file)

source: from conclusion of this science article

The uptake of anthropogenic CO2 by the ocean changes the seawater chemistry and will significantly impact biological systems in the upper oceans. Estimates of future atmospheric and oceanic CO2 concentrations, based on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) emission scenarios and general circulation models indicate that atmospheric CO2 levels could exceed 500 ppmv by the middle of the 21st century, and 800 ppmv by 2100. Corresponding models for the oceans indicate that by 2100, surface water pH will decrease by approximately 0.4 pH units relative to the preindustrial value, lower than it has been for more than 20 My. The carbonate ion concentration will also decrease by almost 50% relative to preindustrial levels. Such changes will significantly lower the ocean
