The Institute for Natural Resources (INR) is working with the California Ocean Science Trust (CalOST) to convene an expert panel that will advance decision-makers’ understanding of the drivers and impacts of ocean acidification and hypoxia.
The panel will synthesize and interpret knowledge from this scientifically diverse and rapidly evolving field of research, and will identify research and monitoring priorities critical to the West Coast's future.
CalOST and INR will guide and support the panel using their expertise in understanding manager needs and facilitating cross-disciplinary groups. Together CalOST and INR will serve as the link between the panel and state, regional and federal decision-makers by providing the management and policy context for ocean acidification and hypoxia.
More information about the panel, including meeting notes, is available on the CalOST West Coast Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia Science Panel website.
