7th New Zealand Ocean Acidification Annual Workshop – “the acid test”, 11-12 February 2014, Wellington

On the 11th and 12th February 2014 the 7th New Zealand Ocean Acidification Annual Workshop will be held in Wellington. The meeting will be attended by scientists, policy makers and stakeholders. Papers will be presented on recent work in this southwest Pacific region ranging from: the influence of carbonate saturation states on deep sea corals, to microbial activity in high CO2 vent waters and sea ice, to the influence of ocean acidification on shellfish aquaculture, larval and juvenile invertebrates, and possible consequences for tropical coral reefs.

Three international keynote speakers, Libby Jewett (NOAA), Phil Munday (James Cook University, Australia) and Andreas Andersson (Scripps, USA) will provide a more global context for the work that is going on in this region.  Discussion will focus around the future monitoring of ocean acidification in this region. The meeting is being organised by the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric (NIWA) Research, hosted by Victoria University, Wellington, with support from the University of Otago, New Zealand Ministry of Primary Industries and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
