SCIENCE, MONITORING & STAKEHOLDER

WORKSHOPS

SOCAN hosts workshops throughout the U.S. Southeast to synthesize and prioritize acidification science and monitoring, promote sharing of information, and enhance collaboration.

GEORGIA/SOUTH CAROLINA
STAKEHOLDER WORKSHOP

On July 27, 2018 SOCAN & the Ocean Conservancy facilitated the first public conversation about water quality, acidification and what it means for stakeholders in South Carolina and Georgia.

The one-day workshop at the South Carolina Aquarium served as a forum for coastal acidification discussion. Shellfish operators, scientists, and resource managers joined the conversation to discuss the changes they've seen in water quality and coastal resources.

SECOORA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Ocean Acidification Program are facilitating the operation of the SOCAN to support and encourage discussions on ocean and coastal acidification in the Southeast region.
