CONSISTENT OCEAN ACIDIFICATION MESSAGING:  THE KEY TO CONSISTENT UNDERSTANDING

CONSISTENT OCEAN ACIDIFICATION MESSAGING: THE KEY TO CONSISTENT UNDERSTANDING

September 2nd, 2020

In this webinar Erin Winslow, PhD candidate at the University of California Santa Barbara acknowledges that communicating ocean acidification is a challenge for scientists, researchers, educators, and professionals alike. Arguably one of the greatest obstacles to productive conversations about ocean acidification is the absence of clear, concise, and consistent messaging of complicated processes. Successful messaging can be established by utilizing language that is digestible and constant across educational landscapes. The National Network for Ocean and Climate Change Interpretation (NNOCCI) supported by the National Science Foundation established a framework for communicating climate science, and specifically ocean acidification, to the general public. During this presentation, the process and lessons learned in creating visual aids with specific examples of how ocean acidification impacts ecosystems in various geographic regions is discussed. Each infographic has the same general layout and consistent messaging, tailored to each ocean region. The visual aids simplify current climate and ocean change research to articulate why ocean acidification is occurring, how it is impacting our ocean, and also provide actionable solutions for viewers.

What can we do about ocean acidification? Telling the story of local actions in the face of global change

What can we do about ocean acidification? Telling the story of local actions in the face of global change

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.

Beyond dissolving shell in acid: New approaches to teaching ocean acidification

Beyond dissolving shell in acid: New approaches to teaching ocean acidification

September 18, 2018 6pm EDT (3pm PDT)

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.
