The US announces continued support to the IAEA Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (OA-ICC) at 2019 Our Oceans Conference

The United States announced USD 316,830 to two Nuclear Sciences and Applications projects through the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) Peaceful Uses Initiative. The contributions include USD 251,670 to the Ocean Acidification International Coordination Center (OA-ICC) located at the Environment Laboratories in Monaco. The OA-ICC works to promote, facilitate, and communicate global activities on ocean acidification and serves as a hub to bring together scientists, policy makers, media, schools, the general public, and other ocean acidification stakeholders. Since 2010, the United States has allocated a total of more than USD 3.4 million to the OA-ICC. The United States also announced a contribution of USD 65,160 to a continuing IAEA project, “Marine Plastics: Tackling the Challenge Using Nuclear Applications.” This project seeks to develop and apply radio-labelling techniques to assess how marine microplastic particles and their associated adsorbed organic pollutants are bioaccumulated in marine organisms, and evaluate effects to organisms. Since 2010 the United States has allocated over USD 620,000 to this project.
