Session Description: The Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network, GOA-ON (www.goa-on.org), was established in 2012 to serve scientific and policy needs by providing coordinated, worldwide information on ocean acidification and its ecological impacts. The work of GOA-ON is guided by three high level goals: 1) to improve our understanding of global ocean acidification conditions; 2) to improve our understanding of ecosystem response to ocean acidification; and 3) to acquire and exchange the data and knowledge necessary to optimize the modeling of ocean acidification and its impacts. GOA-ON was organized by scientists for international coordination, with researchers from 66 countries now participating, has evolved to incorporate regional hubs for collaboration, and provides and promotes training and capacity building activities. By using consistent methods and networking data, GOA-ON enhances our understanding of the local expressions of this global process, thereby covering a range of spatial scales.
We invite all presentations that provide insights and progress on the three goals of GOA-ON. We especially welcome presentations that showcase how GOA-ON regional hubs are fostering scientific collaborations around the world.
