On behalf of the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) we are excited to announce that the GOA-ON Implementation Strategy was officially launched at the 4th GOA-ON International Workshop, held in Hangzhou, China on 14-17 April. This document outlines how to implement the GOA-ON Requirements and Governance Plan, including expanding ocean acidification observations, closing human and technology capacity gaps, connecting scientists regionally and globally, and informing about the impacts of ocean acidification. The aim is to provide guidance that will allow for comparability across the Network, while considering the potentially different requirements and impediments of regions. The Implementation Strategy also offers practical information prompting members to approach GOA-ON’s goals.
The Implementation Strategy can be found on the GOA-ON website HERE. The GOA-ON Executive Council welcomes any feedback you may have about this document by 1 July 2019. You may provide feedback by contacting Jan Newton (janewton[at]uw.edu) and the GOA-ON Secretariat (secretariat[at]goa-on.org) directly.
