NRC Study on Ocean Acidification

The National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences is assembling a panel of 10-12 scientists to undertake an 18-month study to examine the impacts of ocean acidification on fisheries, marine mammals, coral reefs, and other natural resources. The committee membership will include expertise in chemical and biological oceanography, marine ecology, physiology, ocean-climate modeling, paleoceanography, and resource management and economics. Two OCB documents, the ocean acidification white paper and the ocean acidification scoping workshop report will provide a strong foundation for the NRC study.
