Ocean Acidification
As ocean acidification processes are occurring worldwide, we need to go beyond local measurements and observe ocean acidification on a global scale in order to understand its drivers correctly.
Various scales of coastal observations and monitoring have been established for scientific research. However, the application of this information to address common coastal management issues, such as aquaculture, remains difficult due to the gap between scientific research and industrial practice. This mini-workshop aims to engage aquaculture stakeholders directly in dialogue with scientists to bridge this knowledge gap and deliver scientific solutions that can sustain thriving coastal development. Thus, we welcome contributions to identify data and information that aquaculture operators need in their daily practices, as well as submissions on how scientific observations and monitoring capabilities can address these needs.
Satellite remote sensing is a critical, large spatiotemporal-scale observational resource, with powerful application in marine carbon research. Yet, the limited parameters and interpretations of current satellite products remain a substantial gap in linking observations to biogeochemical processes, and ultimately their responses to global climate change. This training workshop serves as an inter-disciplinary platform to facilitate and promote interaction and cooperation among scientists to integrate satellite remote sensing data and biogeochemical studies for a better understanding of the ocean carbon system.
