Assess, anticipate, adapt: Vulnerability and Responses to Ocean Acidification

Assess, anticipate, adapt: Vulnerability and Responses to Ocean Acidification

NOAA Ocean Acidification Program

There are areas in the United States where marine resources and the communities and industries that depend on them are particularly vulnerable to the impacts of ocean acidification. In three US regions, our understanding of vulnerability is being advanced by coupling ocean and social science data to equip communities and industries with the information needed to evaluate, anticipate, and adapt to ocean acidification.

OAP Director participates in workshop focused on expanding ocean acidification stakeholders in Latin America

March 17th, 2018

OAP Director, Libby Jewett, will participate in and present at a workshop focused on expanding ocean acidification stakeholders in Latin America. The workshop will take place in Santa Marta, Colombia March 17th-22nd. Dr. Jewett will be presenting both the overview of the science of Ocean Acidification (OA) and its implications for our world's oceans and an introduction to the work of the Global OA Observing Network which she co-chairs.

Mid-Atlantic Ocean Acidification Graduate Fellowship Opportunity

Ocean Acidification Program and Sea Grant

The Mid-Atlantic Sea Grant Programs in partnership with the NOAA Ocean Acidification Program, are pleased to announce the availability of Ocean Acidification Graduate Research Fellowships for a two-year period covering the 2018 and 2019 academic years. The fellowship is open to full-time graduate students at any academic institution in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Virginia who are engaged in coastal and marine research relevant to regional ocean, coastal, and estuarine acidification. The focus should be on improving understanding of the potential ecological consequences of increasing carbon dioxide concentration in regional coastal waters. Projects may encompass natural and/or social science research topics.

Proposals are being accepted through 5:00 pm ET on Friday, April 13, 2018 via [EasyDNNnewsLink|91].  

This announcement and additional information can be found on each state Sea Grant program’s website.

Scientists pinpoint how ocean acidification weakens coral skeletons

National Science Foundation, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Corals grow their skeletons upward toward sunlight, thickening and reinforcing them. The new research, led by National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded scientists at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), shows that ocean acidification impedes the thickening process -- decreasing the skeletons' density and leaving them more vulnerable to breaking. The results were published this week in the journal [EasyDNNnewsLink|90].

Summer Course: Research Methods in Ocean Acidification 2018

Friday Harbor Laboratories, University of Washington

A summer course will be offered on "research methods in ocean acidification", July 16-August 17, 2018. The course will introduce students to key theory, methods, and techniques in ocean acidification research. Through a mixture of hands-on lab experience, field observations, and small-group workshops and lectures the course aims to provide students with the relevant knowledge and skills to perform ocean acidification research at their home institutions, and in other settings.

The course will be taught by Drs. Jon Havenhand (Dept. of Marine Sciences, University of Gothenburg, Sweden), Andrew Dickson (Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego), and Terrie Klinger (School of Marine & Environmental Affairs, University of Washington)
