Ocean Acidification Week 2023
A virtual multi-day forum to highlight ocean acidification research for sustainability initiatives around the world
Monday 30 October - Friday 3 November 2023
OA Week debuted in 2020, and returned in 2021, when events and conferences were postponed due to COVID-19. Following the successful in-person Symposium on the Ocean in a High CO2 World in 2022, GOA-ON is bringing back OA Week 2023 to maintain momentum around OA research and provide a virtual platform for the ocean acidification community to exchange their latest findings. This virtual symposium will bring together researchers across the world with sessions, plenary speakers, and engaging talks about ocean acidification research. If you have specific questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
The key goals of OA Week are:
- Engage the OA and broader oceanographic communities, raise awareness to the issue of OA, and bring attention to the global OA monitoring, research, capacity building, and education efforts
- Share GOA-ON's three high-level goals
- Raise awareness and create community around OA research to support the UN Ocean Decade Endorsed Programme OARS in its implementation phase
- Engage early career ocean professionals through ICONEC
New This Year
OARS, a UN Ocean Decade Endorsed Programme supported by GOA-ON, is now in the implementation phase. Over the past two years, OARS co-champions have outlined a vision for the direction of the OARS programme. Now, during the implementation phase for this programme, OARS co-champions are encouraging scientists to link their studies to one of the seven OARS Outcomes. Here, we will highlight these on-going actions and encourage others to contribute to OARS. OARS welcomes people to present on their science in relation to the outcomes and/or contact co-champions if you would like to be more involved.
International Carbon Ocean Network for Early Career (ICONEC) Community: The ICONEC community consists of early career ocean professionals around the world who are engaged with their regional hubs and leading many efforts to support professionals at this career stage. If you are an early career ocean professional (i.e. 10 years or less of professional experience), you can join ICONEC here and/or indicate your interest to participate in OA Week.
