Rising CO2, ocean acidification, and their Impacts on marine microbes

Dear OCB Colleagues.

As you may (or may not) have heard, the Plymouth Marine Laboratory and the Center for Microbial Oceanography: Research and Education (C-MORE), a NSF Science and Technology Center located at the University of Hawaii, have organized a 3-day workshop that includes a science symposium on the topic of “Rising CO2, ocean acidification and their impacts on marine microbes.” The meeting will take place from 24-26 Feb 2009, at the East West Center on the University of Hawaii’s Manoa campus. Funding for the workshop and symposium is provided by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the Agouron Institute, and the National Science Foundation. A website has been set up to provide additional information about the objectives and format of the workshop, including a flyer advertising the symposium on 24 Feb and abstracts of the presentations that will be made. Please have a look (http://cmore.soest.hawaii.edu/oceanacidification/index.htm) and bookmark this website for future posting of the report of our proceedings.

Aloha, Ian Joint, Dave Karl and Scott Doney
