TRACKING OCEAN ACIDIFICATION IN PUERTO RICO: A VIDEO JOURNEY

TRACKING OCEAN ACIDIFICATION IN PUERTO RICO: A VIDEO JOURNEY

January 20th, 2021

Puerto Rico is home to vibrant coral reef ecosystems that support a diversity of marine life and livelihoods. Join Melissa Melendez, University of Hawai'i Manoa and Lisamarie Carrubba, NOAA Fisheries' Office of Protected Resources, as they  share our journey in creating Spanish-language videos (with English subtitles) about ocean acidification, its causes, consequences, research and possible solutions for the Puerto Rican public and island visitors. The video invites viewers to get involved in community actions that reduce other stressors to marine organisms and increase their resilience to the effects of ocean acidification. A full length and short video (highlighting key messages) were created in collaboration with a number of NOAA and non-NOAA partners, including the University of Puerto Rico and Paradise SCUBA and Snorkeling Center, and produced by a local videographer, Efra Visuals.

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.

A Tour of the Ocean Acidification Information Exchange

A Tour of the Ocean Acidification Information Exchange

Tuesday June 2, 2020 11am ET

The Gulf of Mexico Coastal Acidification Network (GCAN) proudly presents Julianna Mullen, the Community Manager of the Ocean Acidification Information Exchange (OAIE). The OAIE is an online community for professionals involved with or interested in ocean and coastal acidification. Ms. Mullen will give an overview of the website, explain how individuals can join, and discuss how members can make the most of this social network.

Pre-registration is NOT required. Join via your computer or smartphone by visiting: https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/251950469

New Insights into the Complexity of Estuarine Acidification Seminar

This virtual seminar will focus coupled a comprehensive measurement program to retrospective and future model simulations to quantify controls on estuarine acidification in Chesapeake Bay,a large estuarine complex with strong gradients of salinity, oxygen, metabolicrates, and bathymetry. Researched found that estuarine acidification may be even more complex (and interesting!) than originally posited, owing to self-buffering processes within macrophyte communities, connections of acidification rates to watershed management aimed at oxygen improvements, and a varying buffering of acidification through altered carbonate chemistry within freshwater sources. This new understanding presents both challenges and opportunities to managing future acidification along the coast.
