Improving Ocean Research and Mapping

The White House

Summary: Federal reports advance knowledge and describe actions to address ocean acidification and ocean and coastal mapping.

Two reports released today respond to the 2014 Strategic Plan for Federal Research and Monitoring of Ocean Acidification, which was prepared pursuant to the Federal Ocean Acidification Research and Monitoring Act of 2009 (FOARAM). The “Implementation of the Strategic Plan for Federal Research and Monitoring of Ocean Acidification” report identifies the needs and activities described in the Strategic Plan that are being addressed by Federal agencies. These efforts will enable agencies to better identify and address gaps in research and information on ocean acidification. To complement the Implementation Plan, the “Fourth Report on Federally Funded Ocean Acidification Research and Monitoring Activities” responds to a Congressional request for biennial updates on implementation activities under FOARAM, identifies expenditures for these activities, and details how Federal agencies are implementing the Strategic Plan in a coordinated and complimentary manner.
