Australia, the United States and China have joined the Europe-based Ocean Acidification Reference User Group, giving its work a truly international focus. Dr Donna Roberts, a Senior Research Fellow with the ACE CRC, represented Australia at the first meeting of the international group held in Monaco from 2-4 December, 2013. The group aims to raise awareness of ocean acidification and to ensure that decision makers at the highest level are kept up to date with developments in scientific research. Dr Roberts is leading the world’s first natural polar CO2 enrichment experiment to assess the vulnerability of Southern Ocean sea floor communities to increasing CO2 emissions and is actively engaged in translating southern polar ocean acidification research outcomes for policy makers in Australia and beyond.
