Ocean acidification spring discussion series

The Alaska Ocean Acidification Network announces our Spring Discussion Series! We are hosting four specialized dialogue sessions from March through May, with the intention to: 

  • Address and explore topics within ocean acidification that are of most interest to Alaskans
  • Discuss ideas and identify priorities
  • Document key issues and needs so they can be communicated to funding sources, policymakers and potential collaborators

These dialogue sessions are spaces for you to both learn and provide input. Each session will run from 1-3pm AK time, beginning with a 30 minute presentation by topic area experts, followed by interactive discussion and breakouts. (The dialogue series will also be recorded and made available to registrants after each event).


Where: Online: 1:00-3:00 pm AKDT, 5:00-7:00 pm EDT


March 23 – Regional Conditions: What do we know about ocean acidification conditions around the state, what parts are expected to change most rapidly in the future, and what areas may be most sensitive to change?

April 5 – Species Response #1: OA and Local Communities: What does ocean acidification mean for mariculture and subsistence?

April 20 – Species Response #2: Commercial Species: What does ocean acidification mean for commercially harvested species including groundfish, salmon, and crab?

May 4 – Adaptation and Mitigation: How can carbon dioxide removal, carbon sequestration, and natural climate solutions help us adapt to or mitigate climate change and ocean acidification?
