Would you expect to find more dissolved oxygen in ocean water around the North Pole or in ocean water nearer the equator?Why?

  • General Science -

    Gases are more soluble in cold water than hot water; therefore, I would expect to find more dissolved oxygen in the colder water.

  • General Science -

    How does temperature affect the solubility of gasses? THen, what removes dissolved O2 in seawater producing CO2? Are those organisms in polar areas?
