Here are some of the latest happenings in the world of ocean acidification in Canada and beyond!

OA Alliance Releases Infographic, "How Do You Measure OA?"

The following is cross posted from the OAIE:

The OA Alliance has released a new infographic suitable for engaging policy makers, resource managers, government ministries and programs (as well as the public) around OA knowledge and information. Aims to support understanding and implementation of UN SDG 14.3.1 "How Do You Measure Ocean Acidification?"

Monitoring for OA can tell us how the ocean is changing in response to climate change and how this may impact marine life, coastal communities and local economies. Some areas will experience more rapid change than others and the more we know, the better we can respond. Get a better understanding of the parameters needed to measure OA.
