Keeping a Watch on Seaweeds: The Forests of the World’s Coasts

We can learn so much about the health of our ocean by observing seaweeds, because these #macroalgal communities are very sensitive to marine stressors such as #warming #acidification #pollution and invasive species.

 

The POGO-IMAS-GOOS Macroalgae Working Group met in September to plan the implementation of a global long-term observing and data sharing strategy for macroalgal communities.

The meeting report was published last week on the @AGU_EOS website.
