Understanding Adaptive Capacity: An Analysis of Community Perceptions and Policy Responses to Ocean Acidification and other marine stressors on the West Coast
Young Scientist Webinar Series

The Cape Perpetua Collaborative is hosting a Young Scientist Webinar Series featuring graduate students and postdocs sharing their ocean research. This series will take place October – April on the second Tuesday of the Month at 5:30pm.

April 13 at 5:30pm - Presenting Victoria Williams, Master of Public Policy student from Oregon State University

Description
Ocean acidification disrupts the carbonate chemistry of coastal ecosystems, which indirectly and directly affects communities that depend on critical marine organisms. Ocean acidification research typically seeks to understand natural system responses; yet, there is insufficient research that examines community and institutional responses or, more generally, their vulnerability to ocean acidification. Considering the insufficient information to direct policy efforts to combat ocean acidification, this project aims to understand the Dungeness crabbers’ perceptions of the adaptive capacity of ocean acidification and other environmental stressors. By understanding the perceptions of the four coastal communities, alongside perceptions of Oregonian decision and policy makers, the project hopes to contribute to broader efforts to apply human adaptive capacity to ocean acidification.
