On June 5, 2008, WHOI senior scientist Scott Doney (center) testified before the Subcommittee on Energy and Environment of the U.S. House of Representatives' Committee
on Science and Technology. Doney, a marine chemist, joined colleagues in offering insight on the Federal Ocean Acidification Research and Monitoring Act, which will establish and
coordinate efforts to understand the effect of
increased ocean acidification on marine life and to develop techniques to effectively conserve marine ecosystems. Doney is flanked by Joan Kleypas of the National Center for Atmospheric Research and Ken Caldeira of the Carnegie Institution for Science.
