UK Ocean Acidification (UKOA)
Widespread concerns about ocean acidification emerged after the Royal Society Report "Ocean acidification due to increasing atmospheric CO2" in 2005. Research at that time was limited to a few individuals.
The UK Ocean Acidification (UKOA) Research Programme is the UK’s response to the call for increased research effort into this emerging science area. To find out more, follow these links
