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.
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.
OAR OAP Deputy Director participated at the AMAP/EU-PolarNet Stakeholder Workshop on Research Needs on Climate-related Effects on the Arctic Cryosphere and Adaptation Options, Reston, VA. This international stakeholder workshop was held in association with the AMAP-organized International Conference on Arctic Science: Bringing Knowledge to Action.
