Supporting OA Action Planning and Implementation in the Mid-Atlantic
Mid Atlantic Coastal Acidification Network (MACAN) and OA Alliance Virtual Workshop

October 26
1:00 PM - 4:30 PM EST
(3.5 hours in duration)

The majority of the Mid-Atlantic coastal states are pursuing OA Action Planning either as stand-alone efforts or as part of broader coastal/ocean planning efforts. This workshop seeks to connect researchers, state agencies, and/or representatives from state legislatures from across the Mid-Atlantic region to help inform OA Action planning with an emphasis on identifying associated data/ information needs for management and coordinating monitoring where appropriate.


(1) Share OA Action Planning progress, lessons-learned and next steps regarding state OA Action Planning efforts.

(2) Deepen understanding about the science relevant for implementing OA Action Plans.

○ Where are the gaps?
○ Are there targeted research projects that would help fill those gaps?

(3) Identify opportunities for Mid-Atlantic states to coordinate on monitoring and/or data sharing at the regional (or water body) scale.

(4) Discuss pathways for setting up a regional OA observation network.
