The Alaska OA Network is working with partners to develop ideas for discussion series an ocean acidification and climate in early 2024. This short (<5 min) survey will help us select session topics fo the series. Thanks for your input!
Researchers from UAF conducted an experiment looking at the direct effect of exposure to future OA conditions and the indirect effect of reduced food availability on juvenile pink salmon. Read what they found.
As carbon dioxide removal becomes a bigger topic in Alaska, the Alaska OA Network is co-hosting and/or circulating learning opportunities so Alaskans can approach this issue from an educated perspective. Join the series to learn more about approaches, challenges and projects underway.
Communities on Kodiak Island have been collecting water samples for OA through an effort coordinated by the Kodiak Area Native Association (KANA). KANA put together a brochure to orient community members to the topic and explain what the samples mean.
The federal Interagency Working Group on Ocean Acidification (IWG-OA) just released a national report on coastal community vulnerability to OA. Alaska OA Network members helped contribute to the Alaska chapter which starts on page 50.
Carbon dioxide removal (CDR) is increasingly under discussion as a strategy to help keep climate change below 2 degrees C and mitigate the impacts of ocean acidification. This webinar will provide an overview of the marine CDR projects recently funded by the National Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP).
