OA-ICC December calendar: 19/12- “Latest OA blockbusters”

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: “Latest OA blockbusters”.

Looking for some exciting informational movies to watch this weekend? Well look no further than this list of ocean acidification blockbusters for all audiences!

1.      ‘Acid Test: The Global Challenge of Ocean Acidification’ was created by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Planet Green and is narrated by Sigourney weaver. This informational film is perfect for the general public and policy makers alike, its glossy production and interesting insights make it a must see.

2.      ‘Ocean acidification: Connecting science, industry, policy and public’ is a very informative film geared towards policy makers and was produced by Plymouth marine laboratory. As well as providing the basics of ocean acidification, the film brings together a wide range of stakeholders including, HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, school children, a Plymouth fishmonger, a UK government Chief Scientific Adviser, representatives from industry and policy making departments, as well as a group of internationally recognised expert scientists.

3.      ‘Demystifying ocean acidification and biodiversity impacts’ created by California Academy of Sciences this shorter animation is for the general public as well as younger audiences. The film describes the problem of ocean acidification in a very clear and easily accessible manner as it shows the path of CO2 from energy consumption to the impacts of ocean acidification on marine life.

4.      ‘Tipping point’ (available in English and French) was produced in 2011 by Laurence Jourdan and Nicolas Koutsikas within the framework of the European Project on Ocean Acidification (EPOCA). “An intelligent look at the emerging science of ocean acidification, that is shot in dramatic ocean locations from the tropics to the arctic, this film follows scientists on a sensitive, compelling and ultimately hopeful journey, into one of the marine environment’s most imminent challenges.” (PW – comment to the San Francisco International Ocean Film Festival)

5.      ‘eFOCE – Mediterranean 2100: Towards a record acidity?’ (available in English and French) by Jean-Yves Collet (2013) gives a comprehensive insight into the European Free CO2 Enrichment Experiment (eFOCE) – a project aiming at developing, validating and implementing experimental systems that enable scientists to investigate the long-term effects of acidification in situ on benthic marine communities.
