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, along with PMEL Lead Oceanographer, Richard Feely, will be attending an Advisory Board Meeting of the International Coordination Center for Ocean Acidification (OA-ICC) on September 26th-28th, 2017.
Max Kaplan, a Knauss Fellow with the OAP, will be serving on a panel at the Arctic Science Networking Workshop hosted by the Arctic Council to be held in Helsinki, Finland. He will be speaking to opportunities to strengthen international collaborations in ocean acidification monitoring in the Arctic, a region that is particularly vulnerable to changes in ocean chemistry
