The U.S. Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry (OCB) program, with support from the UK Ocean Acidification Research Programme (UKOA), has updated and expanded a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) developed in 2010 by OCB, the European Project on Ocean Acidification (EPOCA), and UKOA. The FAQ is a concise, readable summary of the state of ocean acidification knowledge. For an even briefer overview, check out the 2013 factsheet titled "20 Facts about ocean acidification" below!

In all, 63 scientists from 47 institutions and 12 countries have participated. But this is to be a "living" resource so anyone may seek clarification or send comments to Heather Benway for inclusion in future revisions.
