OCEAN ACIDIFICATION: Science, Law, & Governance
We cordially invite you to attend the conference on “Ocean Acidification: Science, Law, & Governance” as a guest of the “Toward a Sustainable 21st Century” initiative at the University of California, Irvine. The program will focus on issues surrounding ocean acidification and its major impact on the West Coast of the United States. The emphasis will be on options for preserving the precious aquatic habitat and the threatened shellfish industry. The problem is global, but the threats are compelling and urgent in the states of Washington, Oregon, and California.
