State legislation on ocean & coastal acidification webinar (video)

March 19, 2020, from 2pm – 4 pm Eastern

Holly GalavottiU.S. Environmental Protection Agency; Mike MolnarCoastal States OrganizationJustine KimballPh.D, Senior Program Manager, California Ocean Protection CouncilCaren Braby, Marine Resources Program Manager, Oregon Department of Fish and WildlifeDonald WitherillDirector, Division of Environmental Assessment, Maine Department of Environmental Protection

Summary: Ocean and coastal acidification threatens marine ecosystems and the coastal communities that rely on them. The U.S. EPA’s Ocean and Coastal Acidification Program promotes awareness and conducts research and long-term monitoring to mitigate impacts of acidification and develop solutions. States play a critical role in guarding their coastlines against local causes of acidification.

Hear from three states who have successfully enacted state legislation on ocean and coastal acidification as they share their experience and discuss actions that have been implemented to address acidification in their state.

Communicating OA science to policy makers (webinar recording)

On October 20 and 21, the OA Alliance and The Ocean Foundation co- hosted a Communications Workshop for OA Scientists.

This virtual workshop provided an overview of best practices in communicating OA science to decision and policy makers and other stakeholders, drawing upon lessons learned and experiences from our national and subnational government members.  It also described how governments are increasingly tackling ocean acidification through legislation, climate action strategies and other international frameworks and specifically—exploring how scientists and in-region stakeholders can most effectively contribute to those processes.

This workshop was meant for scientists working on ocean acidification who are interested in learning how to interact with policymakers.

Call for applications: Climate change and acidification of the Mediterranean Sea – from air-sea interactions to the impacts on marine ecosystems

Dates: 16 Apr 2020 to 24 Apr 2020

Venue: ENEA Station for Climate Observations and Marine Protected Area of Isole Pelagie, Lampedusa, Italy

This course is organized by ENEA – Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development – in cooperation with IAEA – Ocean Acidification Coordination Centre and the University of Gent, and within and in collaboration with the marine Protected Area of Isole Pelagie. The aim of the School is to promote multilateral cooperation amongst different partners through training and research of young scientists from European and Developing Countries, on the theme of Climate Change. Being the education the core of the programme, this school will be based on multidisciplinary inputs in Climate Change research and didactics, considering three main compartments, Atmosphere, Ocean and Marine Ecosystems.

Fifteen participants from three different IAEA Technical Cooperation projects met this week at the IAEA Environment Laboratories in Monaco to receive training on ocean acidification monitoring. Participants learned how to measure pH and total alkalinity using a set of simplified methodologies developed by The Ocean Foundation, the IAEA OA-ICC and experts in the field in the framework of the Global Ocean Acidification Observing network (GOA-ON). The training aimed to empower participants to start ocean acidification monitoring in their countries, report toward the UN Sustainable Development Goal 14.3.1 on ocean acidification, and, ultimately, to inspire mitigation and adaptation actions. The course included both lectures and practical sessions on carbonate chemistry, sampling design and data quality and assurance, as well as biological impacts, experimental design, and opportunities for international networking and collaboration.

Workshop for teachers: carbonated water – teaching climate science and ocean acidification

A professional development workshop for middle and high school teachers.

Participants in this workshop will:
• Gain knowledge of climate change and ocean acidification in the Pacific Northwest
• Explore sources of local environmental data and work towards incorporating data into inquiry-based science learning experiences;
• Receive materials and activities included in the Ocean Sciences Sequence (OSS) curriculum on Climate Change developed by UC Berkeley Lawrence Hall of Science
• Become familiar with and utilize Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to foster “three dimensional” learning through Cross Cutting Concepts, Core Disciplinary Ideas, and Science and Engineering Practices.
