Ocean Acidification Workshop in Anchorage, 2 December 2014,

This workshop aims to bring concerned and/or interested individuals together to hear the latest research, policy implications, community perspectives, and potential impacts along Alaska’s coast and oceans.

Location: Anchorage Marriott, 820 W 7th Ave

Time: 9am-4pm; reception to follow from 4-6pm

We know that Alaska is experiencing a rapid and severe onset of OA relative to many other coastal regions. Studies also show that Alaskan coastal communities have varying degrees of vulnerability to OA, ranging from moderate to severe, with the most vulnerable located in regions where fisheries are primary economic drivers of local economies. Partners across the state have taken great strides to implement the current monitoring system in place, but state funding is set to expire in 2015. Now is the pivotal time to engage with a growing number of Alaskans interested in how we can make informed decisions about OA.  We hope that you will be able to join us.
