ABOUT THE WEBINAR
In 2016, the Joint OAH Monitoring Task Force of the Pacific Coast Collaborative (PCC) and federal Interagency Working Group on Ocean Acidification (IWG-OA), embarked on an undertaking to inventory the OAH monitoring infrastructure on the West Coast from California through Alaska. The intention was to compile the foundational information for a gaps analysis - a comprehensive list of OAH-relevant field
research and monitoring efforts documenting chemical, physical, and biological trends all along the coast - to ultimately inform the design of a West Coast Integrated OAH Monitoring network and the subsequent strategic monitoring investments required to build it.
In this webinar, you will hear from a series of Panelists who will provide an update on the status of this inventory and where are we headed as a region. Presentations and discussion will focus on addressing the following questions:
(1.) Where are we now with our understanding of OA processes from observations thus far that is most useful for the stakeholders in California
(2.) Where are the major gaps in our knowledge that is relevant for the stakeholders;
(3.) What new assets do we need to have a better understanding of the processes involved;
(4.) How can we better coordinate our observational network in the future.
Hosted by Ocean Science Trust on behalf of the California Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia Science Task Force and Ocean Protection Council.
