Ten ocean acidification talks and posters at the Alaska Marine Science Symposium

The next wave of ocean acidification research is about to hit the street! The Alaska Marine Science Symposium begins on Monday when over one hundred presentations and posters will be unveiled for interested readers and listeners on all aspects of Alaska’s marine environment. This virtual event is the largest marine science conference in Alaska, and will also include live panels and keynotes. Registration is free and runs through January 21.
