Webinar: consistent ocean acidification messaging: the key to consistent understanding

Date: Wed, Sep 2, 2020 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PDT

Description: Communicating ocean acidification is a challenge for scientists, researchers, educators, and professionals alike. Arguably one of the greatest obstacles to productive conversations about ocean acidification is the absence of clear, concise, and consistent messaging of complicated processes. Successful messaging can be established by utilizing language that is digestible and constant across educational landscapes. The National Network for Ocean and Climate Change Interpretation (NNOCCI) supported by the National Science Foundation established a framework for communicating climate science, and specifically ocean acidification, to the general public. During this presentation, the process and lessons learned in creating visual aids with specific examples of how ocean acidification impacts ecosystems in various geographic regions will be discussed. Each infographic has the same general layout and consistent messaging, tailored to each ocean region. The visual aids simplify current climate and ocean change research to articulate why ocean acidification is occurring, how it is impacting our ocean, and also provide actionable solutions for viewers.

Save the date: Ocean Acidification Week, 8-10 September 2020

Date: 8-10 September 2020

Description: A virtual multi-day forum to highlight different aspects of ocean acidification research and initiatives

The key goals of OA Week are to:

1. Engage the ocean acidification and broader oceanographic communities, raise awareness to the issue of ocean acidification, and bring attention to the global efforts being conducted related to monitoring, research, capacity building, capacity needs, and education.
2. Maintain momentum around the upcoming 5th International Symposium on the Ocean in a High CO2 World, and share progress on GOA-ON’s three High-level Goals.
3. Serve as the “kick off” to a new GOA-ON Webinar Series.

Webinar: understanding ocean acidification: using NOAA’s new educational tools

Date/Time: Thursday, August 13, 2020 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM CDT

Details:
Understanding Ocean Acidification: Using NOAA’s New Educational Tools

Rafael DeAmeller, NOAA Environmental Visualization Lab Leader

Data in the Classroom is designed to help teachers and students use real scientific NOAA data to explore dynamic Earth processes and understand the impact of environmental events on a regional and global scale. The interactive module provides authentic research questions and scaled data interactions that give students the opportunity to explore this question (and more). In this presentation, participants will dive deep into Data in the Classroom’s Ocean Acidification Module to explore the processes that cause acidification, examine data from across the globe and take a virtual tour of the new web-based curricular modules and data tools.

High-Level Political Forum side event: Developing capacity to address ocean acidification for a sustainable ocean future

flyer shot

The High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) side event ‘Developing capacity to address ocean acidification for a sustainable ocean future’ will take place on the 8 July 8-9 am (Eastern Time)

This side event will illustrate the Community of Ocean Action Ocean Acidification and the Community of Ocean Action on Scientific Knowledge, Research Capacity and Technology Transfer collaborations to establish transformative action, and thus to achieve SDG target 14.3 to minimize impacts of ocean acidification. The event will present success stories, including the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network and the International Alliance to Combat Ocean Acidification, and showcase ways to amplify future capacity development efforts, during the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.
