Current Status of OA research in Samoa (text & video)

OA Week 2021, PI-TOA (Pacific Islands & Territories) Hub Session

Dr. Patila Malua Amosa, National University of Samoa, Samoa


The initial OA research in Samoa was implemented with assistance from The Ocean Foundation through the toolkit provided to collect seawater chemistry data. The project faced several challenges during the two years of implementation which was discussed during the 2020 OA week. This presentation will focus on where we are with OA research since then, the impacts of the COVID19 pandemic on our proposed work and the way forward for local OA studies.

Ocean Acidification Week 2021 was sponsored by the following organizations:

(1) GOA-ON, the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network,

(2) NOAA, the United States National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration,

(3) IAEA OA-ICC, the International Atomic Energy Agency – Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre, and

(4) IOC-UNESCO – the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
