Happy new year from the EPOCA blog!

The EPOCA Project Office (Lina, Anne-Marin and I) wishes all the best for 2012 to all readers of the EPOCA blog! We thank you all for your interest. 2012 will be a transition year for this blog as EPOCA will come to an end in June 2012. Several options will be investigated to make sure that this blog continues; I will keep you posted in due time.

Here are a few numbers:

  • 3386 posts have been published since 2006 (about 1000 in 2011)
  • 570 subscribers through RSS or email (up from 460 in 2010)
  • 270 Twitter followers (up from 161 in 2010)
  • an unknown number of FaceBook friends

I remind you below the content of the “About” page and that comments are always welcome. Just type your comment in the box located below each article. Note that comments are moderated.

This blog was started in July 2006 as a “one man” effort. It is a product of EPOCA, the European Project on Ocean Acidification since May 2008 and it is sponsored by the IMBER and SOLAS projects since January 2010. Its only ambition is to centralize information available on ocean acidification and its consequences on marine organisms and ecosystems. By no means it is meant to be comprehensive but we are trying to provide an unbiased view of the literature and media articles. The owner of this blog, the European Commission and the sponsoring organizations do not endorse the information published.

This blog is coordinated by:

Jean-Pierre Gattuso, CNRS Senior Research Scientist

    Well I, for one, certainly hope you are able to continue this blog. It is very handy to have much of the latest science on OA consolidated in the one place.
