NECAN Monitoring Priorities in the Northeast Workshop ReportNECAN Monitoring Priorities in the Northeast Workshop Report

From November 1st to 3rd, NECAN hosted an “OA Monitoring Priorities in the Northeast” Workshop. This collaborative event brought together experts from across the NECAN region to discuss and establish priorities for ocean acidification (OA) monitoring. The workshop's content was based on the 2023 NECAN webinar series.

The primary objective of the workshop was to set priorities that would guide the recommendations featured in the upcoming OA Monitoring Plan for the Northeast. We are pleased to report that the workshop successfully achieved its goals, with numerous clear priorities identified during discussions throughout the three days.


NECAN Report on Ocean and Coastal AcidificationNECAN Report on Ocean and Coastal Acidification

The Northeast Coastal Acidification Network (NECAN) published "Ocean and Coastal Acidification off New England and Nova Scotia" in the June 2015 Special Issue of Oceanography.

The article explains why the Northeast region is especially vulnerable to acidification, summarizes scientific findings about effects on marine life, and identifies research priorities. The information is based in part on a series of state-of-the-science webinars and workshops hosted by NECAN.
A four-page brochure is also available that summarizes key information from the article.
