Assessing ocean alkalinity enhancement as a climate solution and resilience tool
Ocean alkalinity enhancement (OAE) is a marine carbon removal approach that can also provide relief from ocean acidification. While in its early stages, It is critical to align OAE R&D efforts with sustainable development goals, ocean acidification resiliency efforts, and national and industrial climate pledges. This panel will explore how a variety of stakeholders views ocean alkalinity enhancement research, and how OAE might help to mitigate the worst effects of climate change.
