OA Week 2023: ICONA Session

Date: Monday 30 October 2023

Time: 8:00 UTC  View in various time zones



The International CO2 Natural Analogues (ICONA) network aims to facilitate innovative research on the ecosystem-level effects of ocean acidification using natural analogues from temperate, sub-tropical and tropical regions and foster the discovery and use of natural analogues suitable for ocean acidification research. In the last year, several joint surveys at different analogues for ocean acidification have been conducted. Members from the ICONA network will give an update on their recent research on the ecosystemic effects of ocean acidification.
