The Office of National Marine Sanctuaries (ONMS) and broader NOAA groups are developing ocean acidification plans. Many scientists are working within the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary on ocean acidification research… This profile of ocean acidification experience and capabilities is to help poise the region for optimal contribution to societal needs for this information.
To address resource management information needs, the MBNMS often relies on regional partners and facilitates collaboration among research groups. In 2011, the MBNMS Research Activity Panel (RAP), a working group of the Sanctuary Advisory Council, determined ocean acidification was a research priority. MBNMS Staff and RAP surveyed regional institutions for those conducting ocean acidification research, and compiled information for the Sanctuary region.
