Atmospheric CO2, ocean acidification, and ecological changes in planktonic calcifying organisms

The European Science Fondation (EuroCLIMATE Programme) sponsored a workshop on Atmospheric CO2, ocean acidification, and ecological changes in planktonic calcifying organisms with 45 international participants both from the EuroCLIMATE programme as well as externally invited experts.


The event was co-sponsored by PAGES (Past Global Changes) with participation from SOLAS and IMBER. The workshop was hosted in Barcelona, Spain at the Cosmo Caixa Science Museum and Hotel Eden Roc Conference Center (Sant Feliu de de Guíxols) in Barcelona, 26-28/09/2007. In the afternoon of September 26th a public symposium on ocean acidification (OA) was organized at, and co-sponsored by, the Science Museum of Barcelona. Public lectures were given by four participants of the workshop: Richard Feely (NOAA Seattle) Global Warming and Ocean Acidification: Double Trouble for Marine Ecosystems; Victoria Fabry (California State University San Marcos) A global geochemical experiment with unknown ecological consequences; James Zachos (University of California at Santa Cruz) Long-term Consequences of Ocean Acidification: A Paleoperspective; and Carol Turley (Plymouth Marine Laboratory) Taking the Science of Ocean Acidification to Policy Makers, Stakeholders and Society. These lectures provide an authoritative but accessible overview of the issue. A summary of the lectures will be available as video at the ESF website of the workshop (http://www.esf.org/acidification-workshop.html).
