Session Topic:

Celebrate World Ocean Day with NOAA!  
Learn about one of the biggest threats to the ocean–Ocean Acidification. Decades of ocean observations show that carbon dioxide absorbed by the ocean is changing the chemistry of the seawater, a process called ocean acidification. Learn how this change in the ocean’s chemistry will affect life in the ocean and those who depend on it.
