Mediterranean Ocean Acidification Hub

The Mediterranean Ocean Acidification Hub is a network that connects Mediterranean scientists who are working and are interested in ocean acidification in the Mediterranean Sea.

The Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) has encouraged grass-roots formation of regional hubs to foster communities of practice for the efficient collection of comparable and geographically distributed data to assess ocean acidification and its effects, and to support adaptation tools such as model forecasts.

The OA Mediterranean Hub includes scientists from fourteen countries in the region: Algeria, Croatia, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Malta, Morocco, Slovenia, Spain, and Türkiye.

If you would like to become part of the Mediterranean regional hub, please contact Dr. Abed El Rahman Hassoun:
