Here are some of the latest happenings in the world of ocean acidification in Canada and beyond!
OA CoP News: The OA CoP has partnered with the DFO-NOAA Ocean Acidification Collaboration, to highlight the incredible projects that are produced by this group's international collaboration. For more information about the DFO-NOAA Ocean Acidification Collaboration check out their webpage here.
A highlight of the Impact of Coastal Acidification on the Atlantic Sea Scallop project and its lead researchers: DFO scientists, Helen Gurney-Smith and Kumiko Azetsu-Scott in Partnership with NOAA Scientist Shannon Meseck. To learn more about this international collaboration visit our new DFO-NOAA OA collaboration project summary page on our website here. Also, don't forget to take a look at the interview of lead NOAA scientist Shannon Meseck from last year featured on the NOAA Fisheries website (click here)!

Networking resource for NOPP mCDR proposals
The US National Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP) published a call for proposals on Marine Carbon Dioxide Removal (mCDR): Research and Development for Assessing Large Scale Carbon Removal and Local Scale Ocean Acidification Mitigation. To be eligible for this funding opportunity, each proposing team must be comprised of participants from at least two of the following three sectors:
Academia (institutions of higher education)
Private sector (nonprofit and for-profit non-governmental organizations)
Government (federal, state, local, and tribal governments)

North American Funding Opportunity:
1) NOAA Marine Carbon Dioxide Removal (USA):
"The NOAA Ocean Acidification Program on behalf of the National Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP) solicits proposals focused on (a) expanding understanding of various aspects of marine Carbon Dioxide Removal (mCDR); (b) understanding associated co-benefits (including ocean acidification mitigation) and risks of marine CDR; and (c) the science needed to build building regulatory frameworks for both testing and scaling of marine CDR approaches. This knowledge will assist in the verification or invalidation of hypotheses regarding mCDR, in order to make informed decisions regarding a potential scaled negative carbon ocean industry."

GOOD-OARS-CLAP-COPAS Summer School 2023:
"The Summer School aims to teach the skills and knowledge of the many disciplines needed to understand the ocean and atmospheric processes involved in ocean deoxygenation and acidification with a focus on Eastern Boundary Upwelling systems. It will expose graduate and doctoral students and early-career scientists to recent developments and methodologies in the study of biogeochemical and physical feedbacks between the ocean and atmosphere in a changing environment.
The GOOD-OARS-CLAP-COPAS summer school is opened to graduate and doctoral students, and early career scientists interested in interacting with world leading experts in the field in a friendly atmosphere, and enhancing their understanding of the processes constraining the future state of the oceans and environmental risks to marine habitats and ecosystems."
The deadline to apply is December 15th. Click here!
