Introduction

      The ocean absorbs about 30% of the carbon dioxide (CO2) that is released in the atmosphere. As levels of atmospheric CO2 increase from human activity such as burning fossil fuels and changing land use, the amount of carbon dioxide absorbed by the ocean also increases.  When CO2 is absorbed by seawater, chemical reactions occur that reduce seawater pH, carbonate ion concentration, and saturation states of biologically important calcium carbonate minerals. This is called “ocean acidification”. Studies have shown that acidification can have a dramatic effect on some calcifying species, including oysters, clams, sea urchins, shallow water corals, deep sea corals, and calcareous plankton. Changes in ocean chemistry can affect the behavior of non-calcifying organisms as well. The ability of some fish to detect predators is decreased under acidification. Studies have shown that lower pH also affect the ability of some larvae to locate suitable habitat, conditioning the success of recruitment of new individuals. In summary, direct and indirect effects of ocean acidification are complex and still not well understood.

 

        Iranian National Institute for Oceanography and Atmospheric Science (INIOAS) and Institute of Marine Research (IIM), Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) organized this workshop on “ocean acidification” to build relationships between scientists, resource managers, policy makers, and the public in order to research and monitor the effects of changing ocean chemistry on economically and ecologically important ecosystems such as fisheries and coral reefs. Below are the topics that will be discussed in this workshop.
