Webinar: U.S. West Coast ocean acidification observations and assets inventory

When: Tuesday, May 29, 1:00 – 3:00 PM


In 2016, the Joint OAH Monitoring Task Force of the Pacific Coast Collaborative (PCC) and federal Interagency Working Group on Ocean Acidification (IWG-OA), embarked on an undertaking to inventory the OAH monitoring infrastructure on the West Coast from California through Alaska. The intention was to compile the foundational information for a gaps analysis – a comprehensive list of OAH-relevant field research and monitoring efforts documenting chemical, physical, and biological trends all along the coast – to ultimately inform the design of a West Coast Integrated OAH Monitoring network and the subsequent strategic monitoring investments required to build it.

In this webinar, you will hear from a series of Panelists who will provide an update on the status of this inventory and where are we headed as a region.

Presentations and discussion will focus on addressing the following questions:

  1. Where are we now with our understanding of OA processes from observations thus far that is most useful for the stakeholders in California;
  2. Where are the major gaps in our knowledge that is relevant for the stakeholders;
  3. What new assets do we need to have a better understanding of the processes involved;
  4. How can we better coordinate our observational network in the future.
