Welcome to the SDG 14.3.1 data portal

This SDG 14.3.1 Data Portal is a tool for the submission, collection, validation, storage and sharing of ocean acidification data and metadata submitted towards the Sustainable Development Goal 14.3.1 Indicator: average marine acidity (pH) measured at agreed suite of representative sampling stations.

The OA Alliance

With a membership representing nearly 300 million people and 366,414 kilometres of coastline, the OA Alliance brings together governments and organizations from across the globe dedicated to taking urgent action to protect coastal communities and livelihoods from the threat of ocean acidification and other climate-ocean impacts.

IOCCP – International Ocean Carbon Coordination Project

The IOCCP promotes the development of a global network of ocean carbon observations for research through technical coordination and communication services, international agreements on standards and methods, and advocacy and links to the global observing systems. The IOCCP is co-sponsored by the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO

PML – Plymounth Marine Laboratory

As a charity we aim to develop and apply innovative marine science to ensure a sustainable future for our ocean.
For over 40 years we have provided evidence-based environmental solutions to societal challenges by applying cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research that benefits society and promotes stewardship of marine ecosystems. Since 2002, and in association with a wide range of national and international partners, we have provided these capabilities as an independent company limited by guarantee with charitable status.
The impact of our science is far-reaching ranging from highly cited scientific papers, to providing scientific evidence for policy and training the next generation of marine scientists. Through the delivery of our science plan we are also contributing to UN Sustainable Development Goals to promote healthy, productive and resilient oceans and seas.

REMARCO

El mar aumenta su acidez ya que absorbe el 30% del dióxido de carbono (CO2) que produce el ser humano. Este fenómeno limita la disponibilidad y calidad de los alimentos provenientes de los mares y reduce los servicios que estos brindan. Con técnicas avanzadas, los científicos de la red investigan la acidificación de los mares para estudiar y pronosticar sus efectos para apoyar las políticas públicas tendientes a la mitigación y adaptación al cambio climático.

MBARI, ocean acidification resources

The mission of MBARI is to achieve and maintain a position as a world center for advanced research and education in ocean science and technology, and to do so through the development of better instruments, systems, and methods for scientific research in the deep waters of the ocean. MBARI emphasizes the peer relationship between engineers and scientists as a basic principle of its operation. All of the activities of MBARI must be characterized by excellence, innovation, and vision.

AWI – Alfred Wegener Institut

As a Helmholtz centre for polar and marine research the Alfred Wegener Institute works above all in the cold and temperate regions of the world. Together with numerous national and international partners we are involved to decipher the complicated processes in the “system of earth”. Our planet is in a radical climate change. The pole areas and seas change. At the same time they play a central role in the global climate system. How does the planet earth develop? Do we observe short-term variations or long-term trends? Polar and marine research has always been a fascinating scientific challenge. Today it is also a piece of futurology.

The European Marine Board (EMB)

The European Marine Board (EMB) is the leading European think tank in marine science policy. It provides a platform to advance marine research and to bridge the gap between science and policy.

The European Marine Board is a unique strategic pan-European Forum for seas and ocean research and technology. We provide a strategic forum to develop marine research foresight, initiate state-of-the-art analyses and translate these into clear policy recommendations to European institutions as well as national governments.

As an independent, self-sustaining, non-governmental advisory body, the European Marine Board transfers knowledge between the scientific community and decision makers, promoting Europe’s leadership in marine research and technology.

The Global Ocean Observing System

GOOS is a programme executed by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of the UNESCO, but its success relies on the coordinated contributions of several people and organizations worldwide.

The GOOS governance model is divided in three tiers: a multinational Steering Committee to provide oversight, scientific Expert Panels to guide system requirements, and Observation Coordination Groups that implement global unified network execution. The GOOS Project Office facilitates the collaboration between these different governance bodies.
