Using Marine Biodiversity to Measure Ecosystem Health

“A successful integrated ocean acidification (OA) observing network must include
Scientists and technicians from a range of disciplines from physics to chemistry to
biology to technology development.”
—(Tilbrook, et al., 2019)

GCOOS/GCAN has been part of the community working to build the Marine Biodiversity Observation Network (MBON). Supported by the National Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP), interagency investment is intended to advance biological observations ranging from microbes to whales. Biological observation is essential towards a full understanding of Ocean Acidification.
