Session on ocean acidification at the 2nd International Ocean Research Conference, Barcelona, 17-21 November 2014

The 2nd International Ocean Research Conference (IORC) is an opportunity for the scientific community to come together to plan the coming decade of international collaboration in marine science and technology, with a view to improving ocean governance.It will be held in Barcelona on 17-21 November 2014, at the Barcelona International Convention Centre.

The abstract submission deadline has been extended to 30 June 2014!

A thematic session on low oxygen and low pH environments in coastal and ocean waters is also part of the programme. It will include oral communication and posters and the authors should choose one of these modalities. The session will be conducted by Richard Feely (USA) and Marilaure Gregoire (Belgium). The goal of this session is to assess the extent and impact of low-oxygen and low-pH conditions in coastal and ocean waters around the globe, including their impact on oceanic ecosystems. Other relevant issues include potential synergistic effects in the presence of both low oxygen and low pH, and the use of models to forecast future oxygen and aragonite saturation conditions around the globe.
