Leveraging ocean science and innovation for healthy and resilient coastal and marine ecosystems (video)

HLPF Side Event: “Leveraging ocean science and innovation for healthy and resilient coastal and marine ecosystems” – 06.07.2022

Working across the linkages of SDGs 14, 13 and 15, the side event organized around multi-stakeholder panels explored how investment and partnerships in research, ocean observations, fit-for-purpose data products and services can empower decision-makers, industry and local communities to conserve and restore ocean ecosystems, address vulnerability and build resilience to climate change.

The event provided an overview of key progress, challenges and opportunities in implementing SDG 14, with a specific focus on ocean acidification and marine scientific capacity applied to ocean management, two targets under IOC-UNESCO’s custodianship. Building on the transformative work of UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, innovation in ocean observation, technologies and information delivery to support sustainable use and ocean conservation will be highlighted.

The event also focused on empowering local communities to build resilience and protect biodiversity through partnerships in nature-based solutions such as the biosphere reserves and blue carbon approaches.

WOAC presents at the 2022 UN Ocean Conference on ocean acidification & equitable outcomes (video)

Skip to 53:45 to begin watching the event recording.

On Thursday June 30th 2022, Dr. Jan Newton (WOAC Co-Director, Senior Principal Oceanographer at UW Applied Physics Laboratory and UW affiliate Professor of oceanography) moderated an in-person panel discussion at the UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon entitled “Ocean Acidification: Co-designing data connections to underserved communities for equitable outcomes.”

This in-person UN side event highlights how global programs – such as the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network’s UN programme Ocean Acidification Research for Sustainability (OARS) and the Nippon Foundation’s Ocean Nexus Center at UW – can give visibility to local voices, especially those of Indigenous, Small Island Developing States and other underserved communities that depend on ocean-based economies for their survival.

2022 discussion series

The Alaska Ocean Acidification Network just completed its Spring Discussion Series. Four specialized dialogue sessions were held from March through May, with the intention to:

  • Address and explore topics within ocean acidification that are of most interest to Alaskans
  • Discuss ideas and identify priorities
  • Document key issues and needs so they can be communicated to funding sources, policymakers and potential collaborators

These dialogue sessions were spaces for you to both learn and provide input. Each session began with a 30 minute presentation by topic area experts, followed by interactive discussion and breakouts. A synthesis report is underway and will be available soon.

Community sampling for ocean acidification in southcentral Alaska (text & video)

The Chugach Regional Resources Commission (CRRC) is a Tribal non-profit fish and wildlife commission established in 1984 by the Tribes of Prince William Sound and Lower Cook Inlet. The Alutiiq Pride Marine Institute (APMI), a division of CRRC, is a mariculture technical center located in Seward, Alaska focused on providing subsistence resource harvest opportunity to Tribal members.

The ocean acidification program, conducted by the APMI and CRRC, has been bridging the gap between western science and residents of coastal communities in Southcentral Alaska. The continuous ocean acidification monitoring by APMI and discrete ocean acidification samples and exposure studies provide climate data for researchers to utilize in studying trends and high-level science. The discrete ocean acidification sampling program is conducted by Natural Resource Specialists in Alaska Native communities in Southcentral Alaska. This video features Natural Resource Specialists from Native Village of Port Graham and the Seldovia Village Tribe, who have been building their capacities for years to manage local environmental protection programs. Utilizing local residents to conduct the sampling is a cost-effective way to expand the spatial ocean acidification dataset coverage, build capacity in those communities and broaden the local knowledge for residents most affected by changing ocean conditions.

Continuing ocean acidification work is critical to understanding the effects of ocean acidification effects on important food resources for the Tribes in the Southcentral region. The community response and interest have been overwhelming and the interest outside the region also continues to grow and this video was made to impress upon the Natural Resource Specialists and community leaders the importance of the ocean acidification sampling program and how it fits into the bigger world of ocean acidification research. It is also intended to educate the samplers and leaders on the results to date and provide them the background needed to share the importance and results to residents of these communities.

Healthy and sustainable oceans in south Asia: the importance of SAROA hub (text & video)

South Asia has some of the largest, and biologically rich, marine ecosystems, including mangroves, estuaries, coastal lagoons and coastal reefs. Ocean acidification (OA) in South Asia can have huge consequences for the coastal blue economy and linked GDP. South Asia Regional Hub on Ocean Acidification (SAROA), a GOA-ON endorsed Hub, intends to bring together early career and experienced scientists with a common interest of documenting geographically distributed data on OA across seas and oceans of South Asia, monitoring OA and effects on coastal bioresources, and engaging in other activities such as involving citizen scientists.

Shellfish farmers adapt to changing ocean conditions (text & video)

SDSU researchers interviewed California shellfish growers to find out how they perceive ocean acidification, and to learn what strategies they think will help their operations adapt to changing environmental conditions.

The researchers hope their study will serve as a roadmap for improving the resilience of the aquaculture industry in California.

Our imperiled sea: combatting ocean acidification and hypoxia (text & video)

Oregon was one of the first places in the world where scientists observed ocean acidification, evidenced by weakened shells in the shellfish growing industry. Low oxygen levels, or hypoxia, compound the problem.

Since 2006, combatting Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia (OAH) have become central issues in Oregon’s climate and ocean management planning.

Responding to the increasing awareness and severity of OAH events, the Governor and state legislators have made investments in Oregon’s future by establishing the Oregon OAH Coordinating Council and committing to the Oregon OAH Action Plan. Dr. Charlotte R. Whitefield, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will share examples of climate change effects on our ocean and what we can do about them. Dr. Whitefield is ODFW’s first dedicated OAH staff member, supporting the state’s OAH Council for the past four years. Before coming to ODFW, Whitefield was a NOAA Knauss Fellow in Washington, D.C., working for Senator Murkowski on her Oceans Caucus, Arctic Caucus, and ocean acidification initiatives. Whitehead received her master’s degree from University of New England, Maine, and her Ph.D. from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, where she studied sea cucumber aquaculture.

This webinar is sponsored by Lincoln City Audubon, in partnership with Oregon Coast Community College.

Live investigation: an ‘acid’ Arctic | ages 7-11 / KS2 (video)

To interact fully with this live lesson please visit https://encounteredu.com/live-lessons…

This fun live lesson investigation aims to show how water becomes more acidic when carbon dioxide is bubbled through it. It demonstrates the link between carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and a process called ocean acidification, a change in the pH or acidity of the ocean.

Students will also observe over time the effects of acid on chalk (standing in as an example of animals with ‘chalky’ structures or skeletons).
