OA News (You Could Use), February 17th, 2022

Here are some of the latest happenings in the world of ocean acidification in Canada and beyond! The Alaska Ocean Acidification Network: 28 days of OA:

The Alaska Ocean Acidification Network is running a social media campaign where they will be sharing valuable OA resources for the entire month of February!

The following is quoted text from the Alaska Ocean Acidification Network:

Follow @AK_OANetwork on Instagram and Twitter in February to learn about ocean acidification around the world! Explore exciting new research, adaptive processes, cultural practices, and how the future of our oceans impacts us all. We will be sharing OA resources in our stories and highlighting researchers, organizations, multi-media, and more!

Follow the 28 days of OA on:

Ocean Science Services: A Conversation with Dr. Richard Feely and Dr. Andrew Dickson: Choosing Ocean Carbon Chemistry as a life pursuit and how it has led to Ocean Acidification

This Ocean Science Services webinar is hosted on the OA information Exchange and is welcome to all! The information below is cross posted from the OA Information Exchange:

Drs. Richard Feely and Andrew Dickson have been in their respective fields for decades leading research in ocean carbon and ocean acidification.

In this webinar, we get to have a conversation. A recollection on how they chose this field and what keeps them interested.

We get to ask questions, "When you were a younger scientist, what were some of the most enjoyable moments you remember? How was cruise life for you? What are the changes you saw? What were the changes you would have like to have seen, but didn’t?"

This is an opportunity for both young and older scientists to hear from these two researcher on their motivations, memories, challenges and interests.

Maybe you as a listener can find new inspiration, and maybe you can form some question you might like to ask either of these researchers during the Q & A.

We'll hear from both for about 45 minutes or so and then open the conversation up to the audience.
