Ocean Acidification Outreach Internship

NOAA and USCB Marine Science Institute

The Ocean Acidification Outreach Intern will work with scientists and communicators to create regionally specific “Ocean Acidification Outreach In A Box” toolkits tailored for diverse stakeholders who want to learn about the latest OA research. These toolkits will include outreach materials most appropriate for various US regional (Alaska, Pacific Northwest, Southwest, Southeast, Northeast and Pacific Islands) audiences and venues and will include actions that audiences can take to adapt to and mitigate this environmental change. By equipping OA scientists and communicators around the nation with effective, consistent and solution-focused messages that make ocean acidification understandable, stakeholders will better understand OA science and be empowered with stewardship actions.

Piecing together the ocean acidification puzzle along the US West Coast

Piecing together the ocean acidification puzzle along the US West Coast

NOAA Ocean Acidification Program

Emma Hodgson, a Liber Ero Postdoctoral Fellow at Simon Fraser University, and her colleagues are making big strides in piecing together the ocean acidification puzzle along the US west coast for those that make decisions around this ocean change. As part of her doctoral research at the University of Washington, Hodgson worked with a team to design modeling tools that create a better picture of ocean acidification impacts on fisheries catches, economies, and communities in this US region.

M.S. Level Position focused on “Identifying Factors that May Exacerbate Coastal Acidification in Pacific Northwest Estuaries”

US EPA

The position is through Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) and is with the U.S. Environmental Protection, National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory located in Newport, Oregon on the campus of the Hatfield Marine Science Center. 

This individual selected for this position will work on a research project focused on identifying the causes of coastal acidification in Pacific Northwest estuaries and the coastal ocean.  Specifically, we are tracking the watershed and oceanic inputs of nitrogen and carbon to Tillamook Estuary through field sampling of nutrients, stable isotopes of nitrogen and carbon (of nitrate, ammonia, dissolved inorganic and organic carbon, and particulate organic carbon) with the goal of identifying local factors which are influencing carbonate chemistry and oxygen dynamics within the estuary.

To protect marine life, NOAA monitoring seasonal and yearly changes in surface water pH in Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico

To protect marine life, NOAA monitoring seasonal and yearly changes in surface water pH in Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico

NOAA Climate Program Office

Since atmospheric carbon dioxide emissions began to increase after the Industrial Revolution, the acidity of the ocean’s surface waters has increased by 30%. This rising acidity—reflected in falling pH levels—harms shell-building creatures and other marine life. As part of their effort to protect our oceans and the communities that depend on them, NOAA scientists have developed a way to visualize and monitor monthly and yearly changes in surface water pH in the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico.
