How Tuesday: Coastal and Ocean Acidification Data

Join us Oct. 24 at 11 a.m. for a guided tour of the Portal’s new coastal and ocean acidification monitoring sites maps and a discussion of the issue in the Mid-Atlantic. A collection of seven acidification-related maps were recently added to Marine Planner’s Oceanography theme. Taken together, the maps will serve as a valuable tool for the Mid-Atlantic Coastal Acidification Network (MACAN) and Mid-Atlantic Regional Planning Body (MidA RPB) as they develop a robust network that monitors for changes to the region’s water chemistry. Building this network was a key priority identified in the Mid-Atlantic Regional Ocean Action Plan, enacted in December of 2016.

This free webinar will be hosted by MACAN coordinators Kaity Goldsmith of MARCO and Grace Saba of Rutgers University/MARACOOS, who will provide an overview of MACAN’s mission and work; and the Monmouth University Urban Coast Institute’s Karl Vilacoba, who serves as the Portal’s communications lead. For planning purposes, please RSVP to kvilacob@monmouth.edu.
