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.
This workshop will focus on intervention strategies to address ocean acidification impacts to coral reefs. Specifically, Deputy Director Dwight Gledhill will be examining option for Caribbean/Atlantic coral reef ecosystems including the Florida reef tract, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands.
OAP Director, Libby Jewett, will be presenting at the 2017 Regional Association for Research on the Gulf of Maine (RARGOM) Annual Science Meeting in Portland, Maine at the University of Southern Maine’s Abromson Center. The meeting's focus is “Ocean and Coastal Acidification: Causes and Potential Consequences for Ecological and Sociological Systems in the Gulf of Maine.”
OAP Director, Libby Jewett, along with PMEL Lead Oceanographer, Richard Feely, attend the 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
OAP's program manager will be presenting on the species' response research supported by the OAP at the American Fisheries Society meeting in Tampa, Florida on August 21st, 2017. She will also be presenting a seminar at the University of South Florida College of Marine Science.
