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

Ocean Week Canada:

Ocean Week Canada is Fast Approaching! If you are thinking of planning an event or are curious to know see the information below.

The following information is cross posted from the Ocean Week Canada Website.

From June 3 to 12, 2022, we’ll be celebrating Ocean Week Canada! It’s an annual national celebration of ocean events, learning, and engagement held during the week of World Ocean Day (June 8). Through these events and learning activities, we’re recognizing the important role the ocean plays in our everyday lives and how local waterways connect us all with the ocean. Help us raise public awareness and celebrate this connection to coastal areas, the ocean, and watersheds in Canada. Together, we can inspire action to ensure a healthy ocean for future generations.

5TH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON THE OCEAN IN A HIGH CO2 WORLD: Abstract Submission deadline and application for Travel support deadline; May 7th. 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! Arctic Net Annual Sciences Meeting Call for Proposals: Proposal submission deadline May 15th.

The following is cross-posted from the ArcticNet Website:

ArcticNet is looking forward to bringing the Arctic research community together once again for the Annual Scientific Meeting 2022. We hope to host this meeting in person in Toronto this year, respecting all public health guidelines as they evolve. When: December 5-8, 2022 Where: The Beanfield Centre Click here to visit the ArcticNet website for more information. Upcoming Webinar from Mid-Atlantic Coastal Acidification Network hosted on the OAIE: From Pteropods to Oysters: Linking Biological Indicators with Chemical Observations to Understand Impacts of Ocean Acidification in the Mid-Atlantic The following is cross posted from the OAIE: Please join us on May 2, 1:30pm-2:30pm Eastern Daylight Savings Time for our next webinar: "From Pteropods to Oysters: Linking Biological Indicators with Chemical Observations to Understand Impacts of Ocean Acidification in the Mid-Atlantic". Dr. Amy Maas (Bermuda Institute for Ocean Sciences) and Dr. Emily Rivest (Virginia Institute of Marine Science),will discuss their research on developing biological indicators for OA in open ocean and nearshore waters, how co-locating chemical and biological monitoring can help identify OA tipping points and improve our understanding of ecosystem impacts in the Mid-Atlantic, and how community science programs like CSI: Oyster can engage volunteers in biological monitoring efforts.
