IGBP-SCOR Fast Track Initiative “Ocean Acidification”

This Fast Track Initiative (FTI) is a joint activity of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP) and the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR). It has been set up as a cross-disciplinary activity to bring together experts on past and present biogeochemical changes in order to address the following overarching question: What can we learn from past changes in the Earth system to better understand the consequences of ongoing ocean acidification?”

Contributing disciplines include marine biology, marine geochemistry, paleoceanography, biogeochemistry, and others, involving scientists from many projects within IGBP and SCOR.

The first workshop will take place on 28-30 September 2006. Web site: http://igbp-scor.pages.unibe.ch/firstworkshop.html
