Are we seeing impacts from OA on species in our waters right now?
In the second edition of "Ask a Scientist", Bob Foy from the NOAA Kodiak Laboratory addresses the question of whether marine life in Alaska is currently showing signs of stress from ocean acidification.
NOAA Kodiak Lab now equipped to analyze incoming seawater, as well as samples from surrounding communities
Researchers at the NOAA Fisheries Kodiak Laboratory are partnering with regional marine laboratories, rural village communities, and local environmental coordinators from Alaska Native Tribes to monitor nearshore marine waters in the Kodiak Archipelago.
Originally from Homer, Lauren Bell is a PhD student at UC Santa Cruz studying algal communities’ responses to ocean acidification and warming in Sitka Sound. Learn more about her research, and what she's discovered along the way.
Looking for lesson plans about OA, or a certain topic within OA? The Alaska OA Network recently launched a new page for educators that includes a chart categorizing curriculum by concept, grade level, and resource type. The network will soon be organizing hands-on lab kits that can be checked out by teachers.
