OA-ICC December calendar: 16/12- “A MAP to OA in the Arctic!”

Count down the days until 2015 together with the OA-ICC! Each day of December you will find a short story on the OA-ICC news stream highlighting an ocean acidification project, effort, or resource.

Discover today’s story below: “A MAP to OA in the Arctic!”

AMAP, no, not an actual map but a clever acronym that stands for the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme.

Ocean acidification is occurring at higher rates in the Arctic region due to the colder average water temperatures as well as the increased volume of ice melt water. There is therefore an increased need for monitoring and assessment of ocean acidification in the area. AMAP have conducted and released assessment reports on OA in the Arctic for a wide variety of audiences including a summary for policy makers, and an in depth report for researchers and scientists. These reports provide information on the extent of ocean acidification in the Arctic as well as its causes and implications for marine life, ecosystems and fisheries.

Find more reports and further information by visiting the AMAP website.
