Our History

This news stream was launched in July 2006 by Dr Jean-Pierre Gattuso (Research Professor at the Centre national de la recherche scientifique, Laboratoire d’Océanographie de Villefranche-sur-mer). From May 2008 it was maintained by the European Project on Ocean Acidification (EPOCA). Since August 2012, the news stream has been managed by the Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (OA-ICC), based at the Environment Laboratories of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Monaco, with the goal of continuing this service to all ocean acidification stakeholders, including the scientific community, decision makers and the general public.

The purpose of this news stream is to centralize information about ocean acidification and its consequences on marine organisms and ecosystems. By no means is it meant to be comprehensive, but we attempt to provide an unbiased view of the literature and media articles.


This news stream is coordinated by:
