OCB hosts first meeting for ocean acidification researchers

Ocean acidification research is growing by leaps and bounds, both in the United States and abroad. One of the greatest challenges facing this fast growing community of researchers is simply to know– Who’s who? What’s happening? Where? Who’s looking for collaborators? What obstacles should the community tackle first?

To begin answering these questions and coordinating the ocean acidification (OA) research community in the United States, the OCB-OA subcommittee and the OCB Project Office held a three-day meeting for OA researchers in March (www.whoi.edu/workshops/OAPI2011). With significant help from NSF, NOAA, NASA, USGS, EPA, and Navy program managers, OCB identified representatives from almost all OA research projects supported by these U.S. agencies to invite to this meeting. Attendees included ecologists, paleoceanographers, instrumentation specialists, chemists, biologists of all types, socioeconomists, modelers, and communications specialists.
