AMAP Assessment 2013: Arctic Ocean acidification

This assessment report presents the results of the 2013 AMAP Assessment of Arctic Ocean Acidification (AOA). This is the first such assessment dealing with AOA from an Arctic-wide perspective, and complements several assessments that AMAP has delivered over the past ten years concerning the effects of climate change on Arctic ecosystems and people. The Arctic Monitoring and assessment Programme (AMAP) is a group working under the Arctic Council.

The Arctic Council Ministers have requested AMAP to:
• produce integrated assessment reports on the status and trends of the conditions of the Arctic ecosystems;
• identify possible causes for the changing conditions;
• detect emerging problems, their possible causes, and the potential risk to Arctic ecosystems including indigenous peoples and other Arctic residents; and to
• recommend actions required to reduce risks to Arctic ecosystems.
