INTERNATIONAL ENGAGEMENT

The NOAA Ocean Acidification Program (OAP) is actively engaged with international partners.  NOAA scientists helped found the SOLAS IMBER Ocean Acidification (SIOA) Working Group and the Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (OA-ICC). SIOA serves as the scientific steering committee for the OA-ICC.

In addition, the NOAA OAP engages in many bilateral activities related to ocean acidification, sharing ideas for effective response, with countries such as Japan, Korea, China, Australia, New Zealand, the European Commission, Norway, United Kingdom, and Sweden, among others. We are working with the Department of State and the NOAA Arctic Program to ensure that ocean acidification is addressed through the Arctic Council as the US assumes chairmanship of the council.
