  • The U.S. Washington State Blue Ribbon panel on Ocean Acidification has released its recommendations. Over the past ten months, the panel was charged with assessing the causes and consequences of OA for the Washington state region, reviewing what research and monitoring was still needed, identifying what responses could help alleviate OA's harmful effects, and highlighting opportunities to coordinate the science and communication about OA.
