Ocean Acidification in Alaska: Current Status, Monitoring Efforts, and Potential Impacts to Marine Life
Tues. August 9 | 3:00 pm ET (12:00 pm PT)
Speaker: Natalie Monacci & Bob Foy
This presentation will cover what we know about OA in Alaska, statewide monitoring efforts to track changes in seawater, and results of lab work to test the impacts of higher-acidity waters on commercially important species. It will also highlight resources available through the new Alaska Ocean Acidification Network, which was recently launched to help connect scientists and stakeholder communities, identify knowledge gaps, share data, and determine best practices for monitoring in Alaska.
