Public Forum: Rosenberg Institute, “Ocean acidification: How does it impact the California Coast?”

April 5, 2017, Bay Conference Center at the Romberg Tiburon Centre, Tiburon, CA

The West Coast of the U.S. sits at the forefront of addressing impacts of OA, due to local oceanography and recent, catastrophic failures at oyster hatcheries over the past decade. Research along the West Coast has brought into sharp focus the potential local consequences of highly acidified seawater for aquaculture operations and California ecosystems more broadly. In response, states have mobilized in developing policy and science recommendations (e.g., WA Ocean Acidification Blue Ribbon Panel, and the West Coast Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia Panel). This talk will review the science of OA, how it is impacting the California Coast, and how the West Coast states have shown leadership in addressing this problem.

Research shows ocean acidification is spreading rapidly in the Arctic

Research shows ocean acidification is spreading rapidly in the Arctic

NOAA Oceanic and Atmospheric Research

Ocean acidification is spreading rapidly in the western Arctic Ocean in both area and depth, potentially affecting shellfish, other marine species in the food web, and communities that depend on these resources, according to new research published in Nature Climate Change by NOAA, Chinese marine scientists and other partners.

Webinar: 4th National Climate Assessment: Oceans and Marine Resources Chapter, Public Feedback

Andy Pershing, Gulf of Maine Research Institute & Fred Lipschultz, US Global Change Research Program

Join us for a webinar on Monday, March 20th to provide feedback on the 4th National Climate Assessment!

Time: 3:00pm EST (12:00pm PST)

Presented by: Andy Pershing, Gulf of Maine Research Institute, Chapter Lead Autho

Fred Lipschultz, US Global Change Research Program, USGCRP Chapter Contact

Register: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7271981171002454017

The National Climate Assessment (NCA) is produced every four years by the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP). The NCA aims to integrate new information on climate science into the context of larger social, ecological, and policy systems. It will provide an updated report of climate change impacts and vulnerability, evaluate the effectiveness of mitigation and adaptation activities, and identify knowledge gaps. Oceans and Marine Resources has been identified as one of the national-level overview chapters to be included in the 2018 national report.  The purpose of the presentation is to provide a brief background on the NCA, present the tentative key findings/outline, and seek public feedback.  During this webinar, the audience can provide feedback on the major issues facing the oceans and the effects these will have on the United States.

If you cannot attend the webinar but would still like to submit suggestions for the NCA4: Oceans Chapter, please submit comments here:

Ocean Acidification Discussion

Ocean Acidification Discussion

Ocean Action Hub, United Nations

The discussion is taking place during the preparatory process for The Ocean Conference in order to engage stakeholders in assessing the challenges and opportunities related to delivering on implementation of SDG14.3 aimed at minimizing and addressing the impacts of ocean acidification. The discussion runs from 9 – 30 March 2017.  Dr. Libby Jewett, Director of NOAA's Ocean Acidification Program, is participating as a moderator.
