Seagrass and Kelp as an Ocean Acidification Management Tool in California

Jan 31, 2018

EOS Center scientists, Karina Nielsen and Katharyn Boyer, were part of a working group of experts convened to address the challenges of ocean acidification. The resulting report communicates emerging scientific understanding of the ability of seagrass and kelp to ameliorate ocean acidification (OA) in a California-specific context. It provides guidance on next steps for the State as it considers future nature-based actions to reduce the negative impacts of OA in California and beyond.

Tiburon marsh restoration project underway
