International Conference on Arctic Ocean Acidification
Monday 06 May 2013

The Arctic Ocean is an important climate regulator and the implications of a changing role of the Arctic on the global carbon cycle are unknown. Receding ice cover will open up potentially enormous marine resources. Therefore, improved knowledge of the resilience of the system to changing carbon dioxide is necessary. 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. These issues will be addressed at an International Conference on Arctic Ocean Acidification.
