4th Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) International Workshop

14-17 April 2019

State Key Laboratory of Satellite Ocean Environment Dynamics (SOED)

Second Institute of Oceanography, State Oceanic Administration

Hangzhou, China



The 4th GOA-ON International Workshop will bring together scientists from around the world to discuss emerging aspects from the coupled effects of ocean acidification with multi-stressors, review global ocean acidification status and forecast capabilities, and explore opportunities for capacity development. We seek to better understand ocean acidification's impacts on industry, increase coordination across nations and stakeholders, and highlight the widespread recognition of the threat of ocean acidification to the health and sustainability of marine ecosystems.

Topics to be covered are:

  1. Ocean and coastal acidification in a multi-stressors environment
  2. Observing ocean and coastal acidification and the impacts on organisms and ecosystems
  3. Regional and global modelling on physical-biogeochemical coupling processes related to ocean acidification and the associated ecosystem responses
  4. Shaping GOA-ON to better meet the information needs of global to local decision makers
