WESTPAC Workshop on Research and Monitoring of the Ecological Impacts of Ocean Acidification on Coral Reef Ecosystems, Phuket, Thailand

Phuket , Thailand

Overview Agenda & Document Overview The ocean has absorbed about one third of the anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions since the industrial revolution, greatly reducing the impact of this greenhouse gas on the climate. However, this massive input of CO2 is generating global changes in the chemistry of seawater, especially on the carbonate system. These changes… Continue reading WESTPAC Workshop on Research and Monitoring of the Ecological Impacts of Ocean Acidification on Coral Reef Ecosystems, Phuket, Thailand

Mangrove Monitoring International Training

Mangrove health index (MHI) has been developed to propose a single metric for estimating forest community healthiness based on three main stand structure parameters, i.e. diameter, canopy coverage and density. The index was considered for representing mangrove ecosystems on an ecosystem scale since mangrove plant communities have an important role in ecosystem productivity and stabilized… Continue reading Mangrove Monitoring International Training

CREPSUM-IOC/WESTPAC Online Workshop on Jellyfish Identification

Overview Program Overview 1. About the event Southeast Asia is a hotspot of jellyfish diversity. However, there have been a limited number of taxonomic studies of jellyfish in Southeast Asia. Early taxonomical studies were done by the Europeans and Americans in early 1900s. After then, jellyfish studies were conducted by SE Asian researchers. As many… Continue reading CREPSUM-IOC/WESTPAC Online Workshop on Jellyfish Identification
