Numerous papers report the effects of ocean acidification on marine organisms and communities, but it has been difficult to compare the results since the carbonate chemistry and ancillary data are often reported in different units and scales, and calculated using different sets of constants.
In response to this problem, a data compilation on the biological response to ocean acidification initiated by the EU projects EUR-OCEANS and EPOCA has been resumed in the framework of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) project “Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (OA-ICC)”. Tens of data sets have been archived in the past several months, bringing the total number of data sets to nearly 800. These data are open-access at Pangaea at https://www.iaea.org/ocean-acidification/page.php?page=2203. Relevant data already archived at BCO-DMO, BODC and AAD are also included in this data compilation with links to original data sets and projects.
If you are a scientist publishing on the biological response to ocean acidification, you will likely be contacted in the future. The OA-ICC thanks you in advance for sharing your data, it is a great way to get more cited!
