Webinar on Ecological and Oceanographic Insights for Decision-Making on Changing Ocean Chemistry

On Thursday, June 27, 2019, Dr. Tessa Hill, Jessica Kauzer and Dr. Ana Spalding provided an overview of our rapidly evolving understanding of changing ocean chemistry on the West Coast, and their new project to:

  • map and overlay areas of high stress on key species of economic, ecological, and cultural importance, including sea urchins, abalone, clams, and crabs; and
  • work alongside managers, policymakers, shellfish aquaculture, and other potential end users to link results with decisions.

New Research to Analyze Geospatial Patterns and Species Impacts of Changing Ocean Chemistry on the West Coast

The effects of ocean acidification (OA)—or the decrease in pH in oceans caused by the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere—pose a substantial threat to the health of marine organisms and coastal ecosystems on the U.S. West Coast.
