The 4th U.S. Ocean Acidification Principal Investigators Meeting
4th U.S Ocean Acidification PI Meeting
February 17-19, 2018 (Crowne Plaza Convention Center, Portland, OR)
The Ocean Carbon & Biogeochemistry (OCB) Program is working with a scientific organizing committee to plan the 4th U.S. Ocean Acidification Principal Investigators meeting in conjunction with the 2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting, where there will be numerous relevant sessions on changing ocean chemistry and ecosystem response. We hope to use the new research presented in these sessions as a springboard for more synthetic discussions at the OA PI Meeting afterward.
The goal of this meeting is to bring funded and newly emerging PIs together to share ongoing research on ocean acidification and co-stressors, discuss progress of the field over past 5-10 years, and develop new collaborations for the future. The outcomes of the meeting will be participant-driven, including new papers, projects, etc. Based on our initial polling of the community, there is interest in the following topical areas:
- Coastal acidification
- Ocean acidification and co-stressor impacts on organisms
- Ocean carbon chemistry
- Sensor and technical development and advancements in experimental design
- Ocean acidification and co-stressor modeling developments
Applications for this meeting were due November 6. Applicants will be notified shortly after Thanksgiving.
Since 2007, the OCB Program has been providing support for the US OA research community via coordination of workshops, PI meetings, and short courses; development of outreach materials; and input to US and international science planning.
