Latin-American Ocean Acidification Network (LAOCA Network) and main inorganic carbon/carbonate system research in Chile.

Abstract:

The recently created LAOCA Network integrate different activities of 8 Latin-American countries concerning the understanding of the ocean acidification and its interaction with other local processes and their impact on marine ecosystems and their services through international cooperation. The talk will describe the main activities of LAOCA Network and will also outline the main research efforts carried out by the Chilean section of the network related to the variability of the inorganic carbon/carbonate system in the coastal area of the eastern South Pacific.
