The West Coast Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia Science Panel, Public workshop, Sacramento, 29 July 2015

Date & time: Wednesday, 29 July 2015, 10:00 to 11:30 AM
Location: Environmental Protection Agency, Klamath Training Room, 1001 I Street, Sacramento, CA 95812

Ocean acidification and hypoxia, often coupled due to biological and oceanographic processes, have the potential for profound impacts to marine and coastal environments. West Coast governments, tribes, and citizens are expressing concerns about the threats to marine resources and the livelihoods that depend on them. These issues are shared challenges among the region, and managing for resilient ocean and coastal communities requires cooperation and transparency in addition to drawing on the best available science.

A compelling catalyst for meeting this challenge is the West Coast Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia Science Panel, an interdisciplinary collaboration of 20 scientists. Convened by the Ocean Science Trust in 2013 at the request of the Ocean Protection Council, the Panel links the governments of California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. This workshop,is an opportunity to
publicly highlight the Panel’s work and emerging messages, and explore opportunities to consider their findings in ocean and coastal management and policy in California and beyond.

Workshop goals:

  • Share the West Coast OAH Panel’s emerging messages, products,and the breadth of their work;
  • Explore examples of application of the Panel’s findings in resource management and policy;
  • Discuss additional opportunities for science-informed action on these issues.
