WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6TH 3PM ET (12PM PT)
In this webinar, Francis Chan of Oregon State University and Charlie Plybon of Surfrider Foundation, shared their motivation for and experiences with developing an educational video on local actions and solutions to address ocean acidification. Using a series of stories of citizen science-based monitoring, industry innovations, and the search for local mitigation solutions, they will share the experiences of Oregonian’s rolling up their sleeves to act locally against a global challenge.

Are you looking for ways to teach about ocean acidification? Sorting through the 90+ teaching resources on ocean acidification developed over the past 10 years can be overwhelming. In this webinar, we: (1) summarized key findings from our review of existing teaching resources, pointing out our favorite dozen and highlighting key gaps, and (2) introduced a new resource, Changing Ocean Chemistry, that attempts to fill in some of these gaps.

Communicating ocean acidification can challenge scientists and educators given the complexity of the chemistry and the often-intangible nature of its impacts. While global ocean acidification describes the changes to water chemistry from atmospheric carbon dioxide, coastal acidification also factors in land-use change, eutrophication and other coastal processes. The Southeast Ocean and Coastal Acidification Network and the Ocean Conservancy have worked together to communicate acidification with industry, government, resource management and scientific stakeholders in the U.S. Southeast. In this webinar, we will discuss methods and opportunities to communicate coastal acidification with lessons learned from stakeholder concerns and outreach in the U.S. Southeast.
