A science “A-Team” focuses on ocean acidity (audio & text)

Recent discussions of the warm-water “Blob” in the Pacific may have obscured previously existing concerns about ocean health.

Like the increasing level of acidity in the ocean, and the more frequent appearance of low-oxygen zones (hypoxia).

The West Coast Ocean Acidification & Hypoxia Science Panel brings together top minds from the West Coast State and British Columbia to come up with ideas for addressing the ocean issues. The panel presents a progress update at a meeting in Sacramento next week (July 29), with several reports due this fall. Oceanographer Burke Hales from Oregon State University is a panel member; he joins us.
