Ocean Acidification & Harmful Algal Blooms: Defining a Research Agenda

A virtual workshop August 11-13th, 2020

Hosted by NOAA's National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science and Ocean Acidification Program

During June and July a webinar series set the foundation for the workshop - a recording of all of the presentations can be found below!

This workshop aimed to determine a few tractable OA-HAB research priorities for potential  inclusion in an upcoming RFP during our time together by identifying:  

  • gaps in OA-HAB research; and
  • potential useful research products that incorporate OA-HAB interactions

    Effects of Ocean Acidification on HABs: A review of what we do and don’t know

    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) and ocean acidification (OA) are both important, co- occurring coastal stressors. While certain environmental conditions—such as nutrient pollution and warming waters—have been closely tied to the proliferation of some HAB species, there is still a lot of uncertainty regarding the impact of OA on HABs. Several studies have found conflicting evidence about species’ responses to OA, likely due to strain-specific responses and
    the interaction of OA with a suite of other environmental parameters. This webinar will discuss the current understanding of the response of several common HAB species to elevated CO2 concentrations. The potential for physiological changes in HAB species, including increased growth rates and increased toxin production, will be discussed along with the potential for OA to alter the competitive fitness of HAB species within phytoplankton communities.
