Nithiyaa Nilamani (Malaysia), 4th International Symposium on the Ocean in a High-CO2 World, 3-6 may 2016, Hobart, Australia

"My sincere thanks to the OA-ICC for making it possible for me to present my research at the 4th International Symposium on the Ocean in a High-CO2 World. During the symposium, there were exchange of many experiences, suggestions and opinions with experts that would be very beneficial for the advancement of OA study to the newbie countries like Malaysia. It also gave me an opportunity to make new friends, renew old acquaintances and discuss potential collaboration.


Abed El Rahman HASSOUN (Lebanon), 3rd GOA-ON Science Workshop, 8-10 May 2016, Hobart, Australia

"OA-ICC [...] provided for me the opportunity to present my research work to the international ocean research community, to meet experts and colleagues from all over the world and discuss with them about my results, share ideas and build a strong network with peers for future scientific collaborations."

Joint experiments and facilities



Mesocosms developed by GEOMAR and used during a field campaign of the European project EPOCA in summer 2010 (c) N. Cobbing

Focal points:
Ms Patrizia Ziveri, Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Spain
Mr Nelson A. Lagos, Universidad Santo Tomas, Chile

Aim


Promote and facilitate international collaboration and joint experiments by providing access to research platforms and large-scale facilities.

Our approach


  • Information sharing

    Facilitate collaboration through the identification of opportunities and mapping of on-going experiments. Opportunities and useful resources will be posted below.

  • Support of scientists to use platforms and facilities

    Long-term in situ observations and high-quality experiments at the community and ecosystem level require community resources and facilities which are typically not available to individual research groups. The OA-ICC intends to support a limited number of researchers to travel to defined platforms and facilities. More information will become available shortly.

Project: EVOLUTIONARY EFFECTS OF OCEAN ACIDIFICATION


Norwegian Polar Institute

  • Contact: Peter Thor, Norwegian Polar Institute, peter.thor(at)npolar.no
  • Brief research focus: We study the importance of adaptation and phenotypic plasticity in the response to OA in a range of animals. Our present focus is pelagic copepods. Evolutionary effects are studied by observations of phenotypic and genotypic variation through several generations. We also study changes in full genome expression by RNA sequencing.
  • Potential collaborator focus: Evolutionary biology
  • Start date: 2014
  • End date: ongoing

Project: CO2 SEEP RESEARCH


Plymouth University

  • Location: Italy, Greece, Azores, Taiwan, Papua New Guinea, Plymouth
  • Contact: Jason Hall-Spencer, Plymouth University, jhall-spencer(at)plymouth.ac.uk
  • Brief research focus: Ecosystem effects of ocean acidification, chronic effects of elevated seawater CO2 potential collaborator focus: omics, genetics, isotopes, physiology, behaviour, ecology.
  • Start date: 2008
  • End date: 2033

Project: EFFECTS OF OCEAN ACIDIFICATION AND HYPOXIA ON BENTHIC, DEEP-SEA ORGANISMS


Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI)

  • Location: Monterey Bay, California
  • Contact: Jim Barry, MBARI, barry(at)mbari.org
  • Brief research focus: Several aspects of individual performance will be evaluated including: physiological responses (e.g. metabolism, acid-base balance), behaviour (e.g. sensory and feeding success), survival, growth, calcification, and reproduction. Species include deep-sea urchins, octopus, snails. Includes laboratory and field studies.
  • Potential collaborator focus: physiology, various responses etc.
  • Start date: 2014
  • End date: Ongoing
