Ocean Acidification--A Global Challenge in Washington State

Jan Newton
Principal Oceanographer and Co-Director
Washington Ocean Acidification Center
University of Washington College of the Environment

Due to the abundance of carbon in our atmosphere and the ocean’s ability to absorb it, the surface ocean has become about 30% more acidic over the past 250 years.  The Washington Ocean Acidification Center is part of the UW College of the Environment.  The Center connects researchers, policymakers, industry, and others to advance the science of ocean acidification, and provides a foundation for proactive strategies to protect marine ecosystems and the people connected to them.
