  • SOCAN Steering Committee Workshop Consensus Points:  On January 12 and 13, 2016 the SOCAN (Southeast Ocean and Coastal Acidification Network) Steering Committee held a meeting at the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC to discuss the state of ocean acidification science, prioritizations and vulnerabilities of the region. During the meeting, committee members worked together to outline what they know about the OA issue in the southeast. They developed a list of key messages to use when speaking to the public.
