Time: 8:30 – 11:45am PDT

Location: Marine Studies Building Auditorium – Hatfield Marine Science Center 2030 Southeast Marine Science Drive Newport, OR 97365 United States

About this event

The Oregon Coordinating Council on Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia (OAH Council) invites you to learn more about the impacts of ocean acidification and hypoxia (OAH) on Oregon’s waters. Ocean acidification (OA) refers to the change in ocean chemistry caused by increasing concentrations of anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere. OA often co-occurs with hypoxia, which are conditions of low dissolved oxygen in marine systems.

In June 2021, the Oregon legislature passed House Bill (HB) 3114, representing a historic investment in Oregon’s efforts to combat ocean acidification and hypoxia. With some direct appropriations to existing work groups at Oregon State University and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, the bulk of the $1.9 million, one-time investment, was distributed through competitive grants led by the Oregon Ocean Science Trust (OOST). App projects funded by the legislation were identified in the 2019-2025 Oregon OAH Action Plan.
