Ocean acidification session at OceanVisions 2019 Conference

Dates: 1-4 April 2019

The deadline to apply for travel grants is 30 October 2018.

The OceanVisions2019 – Climate Summit “Successes in resilience, adaptation, mitigation, and sustainability” is co-organized by researchers at Georgia Tech, Stanford University, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and the Smithsonian Institution in coordination with the IOC-UNESCO, the Ocean Conservancy and Georgia Aquarium. The goal is to highlight ocean-based science and engineering successes in the areas of resilience, adaptation, mitigation and sustainability and promote scalable solutions across human, climate and ecological dimensions.

SESSION III – Protecting Ocean Health: Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia

Co-Chairs: Sara Cooley (Ocean Conservancy), Kirsten Isensee (IOC-UNESCO), Frank Stewart (Georgia Tech), Kostas Konstantinidis (Georgia Tech) 

This session will highlight advances in science and engineering that enable innovative strategies for understanding, managing, and predicting the rising threats associated with ocean acidification and deoxygenation. These include expanding and improving observation systems and research, exploring submerged aquatic vegetation as a management tool, advancing modeling to identify drivers of acidification and deoxygenation (and potential hotspots), and exploring impacts to water quality. The goal of this session is to identify case studies that inform near-term and long-term strategies for dealing with the challenges associated with ocean acidification and deoxygenation now and in the future.

Keynote speakers:

Jessica Cross, Research Associate at the NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory

Curtis Deutsch, Associate professor in the School of Oceanography at the University of Washington in Seattle

Leticia Cotrim da Cunha is Assistant Professor in Chemical Oceanography at Rio de Janeiro State University (UERJ – Brazil)
