dc.description.abstractNowadays, the injection and storage of CO2 in marine geological stable formations is proposed as one of the potential strategies to decrease the atmospheric CO2 concentrations in order to avoid the abrupt and irreversible repercussions of climate change. Nevertheless, practical implementation of this technical option could produce significant impacts on marine ecosystems due to possible CO2 leakages that may occur during the injection and sequestration procedure. This study aims to quantify the possible effects of variation in sediment pH derived from CO2 leakages on metal bioaccumulation. To this end, a lab scale experiment involving direct release of CO2 was conducted using the model benthic organism, Ruditapes philippinarum. Bivalves were exposed during 10 days to sediment samples under established pH conditions (8.0-6.0). Survival, burrowing activity and metal accumulation (Fe, Co, Pb, Mn, Al, Zn, Cu, Hg and As) on whole body were employed as endpoint. After 10 days of exposure, 100% mortality was observed at pH 6.0. Non significant differences for mortality rate were found in 7.0 and 6. 5 treatments with regard to the control (7.9). Burrowing activity was affected by pH, decreasing the activity at low pH levels. In general, metal concentrations in clam tissues were affected by pH.-
