A new fact sheet, titled Ocean Acidification in the Pacific Northwest, summarizes our growing understanding of the causes and consequences of ocean acidification in Pacific Northwest marine waters. This new document is a companion to 20 Facts About Ocean Acidification, published in 2013 by the U.S. Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry Program as an aid to scientists, science communicators and science policy advisors asked to comment on details about ocean acidification. Another great example of communicating about ocean acidification is the Emmy-nominated Seattle Time Series by Craig Welch.
