Travel support available from the IAEA Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (OA-ICC) in the 5th International Symposium on the Ocean in a High-CO2 World, 7-10 September 2020, Lima, Peru

The 5th International Symposium on the Ocean in a High-CO2 World, 7-10 September 2020 in Lima, Peru, is expected to attract more than 500 scientists in the field. It will maintain the traditional focus of the four previous symposia and will look at ocean acidification and the associated impacts on marine organisms, ecosystems, and biogeochemical cycles, as well as the implications for society. Ocean acidification will be considered in combination with other global changes, such as ocean warming and deoxygenation. More information on the programme can be found on the Symposium website (http://www.highco2-lima.org/).

The IAEA’s Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (http://www.iaea.org/ocean-acidification) will support the attendance of selected participants from eligible Member States to present their work and foster international collaboration.

Deadline for nominations through competent official authorities: 6 March 2020

Upcoming webinar: We’ve got chemistry! Leveraging partnerships and the Ocean Acidification Information Exchange to advance ocean acidification and MPA science

Event Date: Wednesday, September 25 at 1 pm US EDT/10 am US PDT/5 pm UTC

Description: Marine protected areas (MPAs), sanctuaries, and reserves offer refuge to a wide variety of marine species, but can they also protect vulnerable organisms from the effects of ocean acidification (OA) and other climate-related stressors? Increasingly, OA scientists and MPA managers are working together to explore questions of adaptability in marine protected areas to explore this question and sharing their ideas on a dynamic new online platform called the OA Information Exchange (OAIE). In this webinar, we will: 1) provide an orientation to the OAIE to the MPA community and other new users, 2) describe how innovative collaborations between researchers and volunteer scientists are advancing both OA and MPA science in the Oregon Marine Reserves, and 3) provide examples of efforts to document changing ocean conditions and understand potential impacts of ecosystem change in Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, including how the development of a sentinel site for ocean acidification on the Olympic Coast supports OA coordination and collaboration in Washington.
