West Coast OA and Hypoxia Science Panel and Report
In 2012, California Ocean Science Trust and the California Ocean Protection Council (OPC) recognized the need to harness the growing political attention on OA towards a fuller appreciation of its drivers and impacts. Inspired by the groundbreaking work of the Washington Blue Ribbon Panel on Ocean Acidification, the OPC asked Ocean Science Trust to establish a scientific advisory panel on ocean acidification and hypoxia (OAH) in collaboration with Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia.
