Supporting Development of Ocean Acidification Water Quality Thresholds in California

Thursday, August 23, 2018
8:00 - 10:00 AM (PST)

 

OVERVIEW

The West Coast Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia (OAH) expert panel recommended development of OA thresholds to support water quality and marine resource management decisions, something which has been reiterated in California’s Draft Ocean Acidification Action Plan. This webinar presents: 1) updates on a project intended to help move toward such thresholds for calcifying marine organisms, 2) thoughts on how those thresholds might be used in early non-regulatory decision-making, and 3) perspectives on the steps necessary to translate thresholds into a regulatory framework.
