Action Group on Ocean Acidification

Terms of Reference

The Terms of Reference for the Ocean Acidification group are to:

  • define our present understanding of the contemporary rates and future scenarios of Southern Ocean acidification;
  • document ecosystem and organism responses from experimental perturbations and geological records;
  • identify present and planned observational and experimental strategies;
  • identify gaps in our understanding of the rates and regionality of ocean acidification;
  • define strategies for future Southern ocean acidification research

The group will produce a major report that will be launched at the SCAR 2014 Open Science Conference.
