1st GOA-ON 'North East Atlantic Hub' Workshop

Tuesday 12 March 2019 - Wednesday 13 March 2019

De Vere Hotel Devonport, Greenwich, London

This workshop hosted by Plymouth Marine Laboratory and the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) will establish the objectives and collaborations necessary to grow the regional hub.

The meeting will also feature a welcome from Dr Thérèse Coffey MP.

The North East Atlantic Ocean Acidification Hub is being established to serve European countries that are conducting monitoring, and other OA activities, within the NE Atlantic region. The Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) has encouraged grass-roots formation of regional hubs to foster communities of practice for the efficient collection of comparable and geographically distributed data to assess ocean acidification and its effects and to support adaptation tools like model forecasts.

Countries within the region known to be engaged in OA research and/or with data submitted to the GOA-ON data portal: Belgium, Denmark, Faroe Islands, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, UK.

Professor Steve Widdicombe will also be representing the NE hub at the Commonwealth Ocean Acidification Action Group workshop in Otago, New Zealand (17th - 19th February).
