Studying the biological consequences of ocean change
Ocean acidification: The consortium approach (PISCO)
Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of the Coastal Ocean (PISCO) tackles OA
Marine Physical Laboratory — Scripps Institution of Oceanography
Exploratory and technology based research and development appropriate to these programs are conducted at the Laboratory, as well as the development of unique underwater sensor systems designed to meet specific research applications.
PMEL — Carbon Program
Mission: To advance scientific understanding of the ocean carbon cycle and how it is changing over time
Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute
The emerging science of a high CO2 / low pH ocean
OA Research within the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary
A list of regional ocean acidification studies by Project Title, Institutions, and PI or Point of Contact (2011)
Bodega Ocean Acidification Research (BOAR)
Led by the research groups of Brian Gaylord, Tessa Hill, Ann Russell, and Eric Sanford, the Bodega Ocean Acidification Research (BOAR) consortium is examining spatial and temporal changes in seawater chemistry and the impacts of this variability on the ecology, physiology, and biomechanics of critical nearshore marine invertebrates. Documented, ongoing declines in pH and carbonate saturation state are thought to pose a particular threat to organisms that synthesize calcium carbonate
OMEGAS–Ocean Margin Ecosystem Group for Acidification Studies
OMEGAS is the Ocean Margin Ecosystem Group for Acidification Studies. We are a consortium of scientists from different institutions along the US West Coast. This interdisciplinary research group was established with an award from the National Science Foundation. The number of investigators and staff collaborating across institutions has increased since the NSF award. OMEGAS seek to meet society’s demands for scientific information on ocean acidification across the California Current Large Marine Ecosystem (CCLME). Interdisciplinary collaborations across institutions focus research to determine how ocean acidification affects marine organisms, populations, and ecosystems.
The West Coast Ocean Acidification & Hypoxia Science Panel
An innovative, coast-wide collaboration advancing across academic and political landscapes.
