In order to document the status and progress of ocean acidification in open-ocean and coastal environments, a coordinated multidisciplinary approach of chemical and biological observations is required. The IOCCP collaborates with the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) and other institutional and programmatic partners worldwide to enhance capability to observe and predict present-day and future responses of marine biota, ecosystem processes, biogeochemistry, and climate change feedbacks.
Sustainable Development Goal 14.3 specifically addresses ocean acidification, and provides guidance and resources to assist countries to meet their commitments to report against the indicator “ Average marine acidity (pH) measured at agreed suite of representative sampling stations.”
