Ocean Acidification in the Salish Sea

Ocean acidification (OA) threatens marine resources and coastal communities around the Salish Sea. These threats have spurred action to address the causes and consequences of OA. Intensified research and monitoring have advanced our understanding of ocean acidification and its effects on local marine life, public processes have led to legislation, and education and outreach have promoted understanding across diverse audiences. I will briefly summarize the causes of ocean acidification and follow with descriptions of some of the recent science and policy advances in the Salish Sea.
