OA Week 2023 – Mediterranean Hub

Date: Thursday 2 November 2023

Time: 9:00 UTC  View in various time zones


This session will give a glimpse of current OA work by a selection of OA Med Hub members. Talks will target OA in this region over a large time scale, from reconstruction of past events to current evidence of impacts on key organisms. OA Med-Hub is a network that connects Mediterranean scientists who are working and are interested in ocean acidification in the Mediterranean Sea. The hub is part of the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON), which encourages grass roots formation of regional hubs to foster communities of practice for the efficient collection of comparable and geographically distributed data to assess ocean acidification and its effects, and to support adaptation tools such as model forecasts. This OA Med-Hub session is an opportunity to gather scientists from the area and initialise discussions that might open up collaborations and fruitful exchanges.
