NOAA's Ocean Acidification Program seeks to better prepare society to respond to changing ocean conditions and resources by expanding understanding of ocean acidification, through interdisciplinary partnerships, nationally and internationally.
NOAA and partner scientists will depart on a research cruise to study ocean acidification in the Gulf of Mexico from July 18th- August 21st.
OAP Director, Libby Jewett, will be participating in a side event focused on "Capacity Development Solutions for Managing, Protecting, Conserving and Restoring Marine and Coastal Ecosystems" during the United Nations Oceans conference for Sustainable Development Goal 14 to "conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development."
OAP Director, Libby Jewett, will attend and present at the United Nations 18th meeting: "The effects of climate change on oceans."
OAP staff will be participating in an upcoming principle investigators meeting exploring the "Interactions between ocean acidification and eutrophication in estuaries: modeling opportunities and limitations."
Chá bă one of the buoys that monitors ocean acidification in waters along US coasts was redeployed and will be taking carbon dioxide and pH measurements every 3 hours to better understand ocean acidification in Washington state waters.
