Ocean Acidification Week

A virtual multi-day forum to highlight different aspects of ocean acidification research and initiatives from around the world


In 2020 the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) launched OA Week as a response to the postponement of conferences and events due to the COVID-19 pandemic. After a positive response, the week is back in 2021 with more sessions, plenary speakers, and engaging talks about ocean acidification research.

The key aims of OA Week are to:

  • 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;
  • Raise awareness of and maintain momentum around the upcoming 5th International Symposium on the Ocean in a High CO2 World;
  • Share GOA-ON’s three High-level Goals and introduce the GOA-ON OARS Program with our audiences.

A full programme for the week and more information is available here.
