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.  

Presented by: Leslie Wickes, Southeast Ocean & Coastal Acidification Network & Ryan Ono, The Ocean Conservancy

Why I put a pteropod in a CT scanner to study the impacts of ocean acidification

Why I put a pteropod in a CT scanner to study the impacts of ocean acidification

Tuesday, March 13th, 3pm EDT (12pm PDT)

During this webinar Rosie Oakes of the National Academy of Sciences of Drexel University discussed how she used a micro CT scanner to image pteropods in 3D to measure their shell thickness and volume. She will explain how she enlarges these 3D reconstructions to print them for educational purposes, and how you can do the same. Finally, she'll share her new research direction, using museum collections of pteropods to decipher how they have been affected by ocean acidification since the industrial revolution.

Carbon Comes Home—Kelp Aquaculture to Benefit both Sea and Soil

Carbon Comes Home—Kelp Aquaculture to Benefit both Sea and Soil

December 4th, 2017, 6pm EST (3pm PST)

During this webinar, Meg Chadsey of Washington Sea Grant, will share the evolving story of phytoremediation and an experimental kelp farm in Washington’s Hood Canal. A serendipitous partnership with a local terrestrial farmer, review of relevant curricular materials published by Maine’s Island Institute and others, and an explanation of how phytoremediation can be used to teach essential concepts about the earth’s carbon cycle will all be discussed.

OAP Helps Build Ocean Acidification Capacity for Pacific Island Nations

OCTOBER 23rd, 2017

NOAA scientists and OAP staff will be educating and training scientists on ocean acidification monitoring in Suva, Fiji on 30 Oct - 10 Nov 2017. Scientists from several Pacific Island nations will convene at the University of the South Pacific to learn best methods for measuring ocean chemistry from experts in the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network.
