Bless Your Coast: Communicating Acidification with Lessons Learned in the Southeast

SOARCE webinar
Wednesday, June 13, 2018 - 13:00

During this webinar, Leslie Wickes and Ryan Ono will discuss how the Southeast Ocean and Coastal Acidification Network and Ocean Conservancy have worked together to communicate acidification with industry, government, resource management and scientific stakeholders in the U.S. Southeast. They will share methods and opportunities to communicate coastal acidification with lessons learned from stakeholder concerns and outreach in the U.S. Southeast.

Communicating ocean acidification can challenge scientists and educators given the complexity of the chemistry and the often-intangible nature of its impacts. While global ocean acidification describes the changes to water chemistry from atmospheric carbon dioxide, coastal acidification also factors in land-use change, eutrophication and other coastal processes. The Southeast Ocean and Coastal Acidification Network and the Ocean Conservancy have worked together to communicate acidification with industry, government, resource management and scientific stakeholders in the U.S. Southeast. In this webinar, we will discuss methods and opportunities to communicate coastal acidification with lessons learned from stakeholder concerns and outreach in the U.S. Southeast.

Following the presentation there will be a few short informational announcements relevant to the ocean acidification communication community. Please forward this invitation to interested colleagues. We look forward to seeing you at this event!

After registering you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Webinar.
