Oceanic uptake of atmospheric CO2 released by humans is altering global seawater chemistry in ways that will affect marine biota, ecosystems, and biogeochemistry. Forecasting these impacts requires an integrated understanding of the linkages among ecosystem components and feedbacks to climate. This website provides a clearinghouse of ocean acidification news and information to support the scientific research community, and it is maintained by the OCB Project Office, with oversight from the Ocean Acidification Subcommittee of the Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry (OCB) program.

OCEAN ACIDIFICATION HEADLINES

OCB, UKOA, the OA-ICC, and Washington Sea Grant have collaborated to produce a factsheet about ocean acidification. It is available on the OCB FAQ webpage.

The Second Ocean Acidification Principal Investigators' Meeting (18-20 September, 2013) just concluded. Outcomes are forthcoming, so check back periodically!

The Paul G. Allen Foundation announced the finalists for their Ocean Challenge, which offers a $10,000 prize for the most promising new science-based concept of an environmental and/or societal response directed at reducing the impact of an acidifying ocean.

The Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPrize has been announced, offering two prize purses totaling $2 million for creating inexpensive and stable pH sensors that will help monitor ocean acidification.

The NOAA Ocean Acidification Program recently held its first principal investigators' meeting (16-17 September, 2013).
