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

Job Opportunities:

1. Director, Ocean Visions - UN Center for Ocean-Climate Solutions and Innovation

The following is crossposted from the OAIE:

We’re seeking a director for the new Ocean Visions – UN Center for Ocean-Climate Solutions & Innovation. Jointly launched by Ocean Visions, Georgia Tech, and Georgia Aquarium, the OV-UN Center is a designated Decade Collaborative Center under the UN Decade of Ocean Sciences for Sustainable Development. The primary focus of the Center is leading and supporting processes to co-design, develop, test, and ultimately deploy global-scale and equitable ocean-based solutions to mitigate and reverse the effects of climate change.

The Director will develop, lead, and support the Center and all of its responsibilities under the Center’s establishing mandate.

The following is cross-posted from the symposium website:

The 5th Symposium on the Ocean in a High-CO2 World is being organized by the Pedro Ruiz Gallo National University in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). This Symposium follows the symposia in Paris in 2004, Monaco in 2008, Monterey in 2012, and Hobart in 2016, which were all key events for the international community of researchers studying ocean acidification and related stressors. The 5th symposia will maintain the traditional focus of the four previous symposia and look at ocean acidification and associated impacts on marine organisms, ecosystems, and biogeochemical cycles. Ocean acidification will be considered in combination with other global changes such as warming and deoxygenation. The Symposium is inter-disciplinary and contributions are expected to detail advances in observations, modelling, field and laboratory studies. Dedicated sessions will emphasize processes and impacts as well as consequences for humans and their potential responses through policy and management., For more information and to register visit their website by clicking here!
