SOCAN is hosting a state-of-the-science webinar series on ocean acidification.  The series will lay a foundation for the state of ocean acidification science in the Southeast region.  These webinars are intended to create a dialogue among key stakeholders to identify what is known, what isn’t, and what research in other locales can be applied to better understand ocean acidification and its impacts in the Southeast US. The SOCAN Steering Committee will use information learned from the webinars to develop a state-of-the-science white paper on ocean acidification in the southeast.  Webinars will be tentatively hosted every two weeks at 12pm ET starting Tuesday March 10. Each webinar will be recorded and posted on this page. Sign up for our listserv for updates on webinars and other SOCAN news.
