Events overview

Title (Name of event - max 250 characters)International Conference on Arctic Ocean Acidification
Start dateMonday 06 May 2013
End dateWednesday 08 May 2013
Location - (max 50 characters)Bergen, Norway

The Arctic Ocean is rapidly accumulating carbon dioxide resulting in a decline in pH. Marine ecosystems and biodiversity will change, creating new economic, social and policy challenges. Ocean acidification is expected to affect fish stocks, marine ecosystems and the commercial, subsistence and recreational fisheries in the Arctic. However, knowledge of all of these questions is limited.

Topics to be addressed:

  • Response of Arctic Ocean to increasing CO2 and related changes in the global carbon cycle
  • Social and policy challenges
  • Arctic Ocean acidification and ecological and biogeochemical coupling
  • Implications of changing Arctic Ocean acidification for northern (commercial and subsistence) fisheries
  • Future developments
