Would you expect to find more dissolved oxygen in ocean water around the North Pole or in ocean water nearer the equator?Why?
Gases are more soluble in cold water than hot water; therefore, I would expect to find more dissolved oxygen in the colder water.
How does temperature affect the solubility of gasses? THen, what removes dissolved O2 in seawater producing CO2? Are those organisms in polar areas?
