California Current Acidification Network
  1. We analyzed impacts of the 2014‐15 Pacific Warm Anomaly and 2015‐16 El Niño on physical and biogeochemical variables at two southern California Current System moorings (CCE2, nearshore upwelling off Point Conception; CCE1, offshore California Current). Nitrate and Chl‐a fluorescence were < 1 μM and < 1 Standardized Fluorescence Unit, respectively,
  2. Join us for our C-CAN Roundtable discussion on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 at 1pm PT (4pm ET) How ocean acidification works hand-in-hand with warming and other global change stressors to promote toxic Pseudo-nitzschia harmful algal blooms along the West Coast Presented by Dr. Dave Hutchins*, University of Southern California and
  3. Ocean acidification is bad news for shellfish, as it makes it harder for them to form their calcium-based shells. But climate change could also have multiple other impacts that make California bays less hospitable to shelled organisms like oysters, which are a key part of the food web. Changes to
  4. The Dungeness crab is an economically and ecologically important species distributed along the North American Pacific coast. To predict how Dungeness crab may physiologically respond to future global ocean change on a molecular level, we performed untargeted metabolomic approaches on individual Dungeness crab juveniles reared in treatments that mimicked current
  5. Researchers have identified four Pacific salmon populations in California, Oregon, and Idaho that are particularly vulnerable to climate change. The salmon inhabit a broad range of territory which makes them much more likely to be impacted by environmental changes. Although Pacific salmon spend most of their lives in the ocean,
