Fifth symposium on the ocean in a high-CO2 world: the latest research on ocean acidification reviewed in Lima, Peru

The Fifth Symposium on the Ocean in a High-CO2 World, hosted by the Universidad Nacional Pedro Ruíz Gallo in Lima, Peru, from 13 to 16 September, convened close to 300 researchers from all over the world to discuss the latest findings in ocean acidification research.

This Symposium series, organized every four years, is the largest scientific multi-disciplinary gathering of researchers studying ocean acidification and its consequences, from field monitoring to laboratory experiments investigating impacts on biology and ecology, to modelling future scenarios and potential impacts on society.

Supported by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, this Fifth edition brought together more than 200 researchers attending in person and 90 participating online. Discussions were organized in six different themes and parallel sessions, with more than 170 presentations and 70 poster presentations.

Monaco hosted the Second Symposium in this Symposium series in 2008, leading to the publication of the Monaco declaration, signed by 155 scientists from 26 countries. At that time, ocean acidification was poorly known. Ever since, HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco has championed awareness raising around ocean acidification, bringing the issue to the attention of His fellow political leaders.
