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.

Bless your coast: communicating acidification with lessons learned in the Southeast

Bless your coast: communicating acidification with lessons learned in the Southeast

June 13th, 2018 1pm EDT (10am PDT)

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.
