Catalyzing Solutions for Ocean Health
The Ocean Visions Research Consortium
The Ocean Visions Acceleration & Impact Partners
Ocean Visions brings together leading oceanographic research and academic institutions with private sector and public-interest organizations to design and advance solutions to the growing crisis in our ocean and climate.
Our work is focused around 3 Grand Challenges:
Reversing the climate crisis in the Ocean (ocean-based solutions to thermal and chemical stress - e.g. ocean-based carbon dioxide removal)
Building resilience of coastal systems and communities to climate impacts (e.g. solutions for sea level rise, extreme events, and changing habitats)
Building a climate-resilient aquatic food system (e.g. aquaculture, including microalgae and macroalgae, ocean-based low carbon diets)
We convene to share research and fast-track solutions.
The Ocean Visions 2021 Summit will bring together a multi-disciplinary community of scientists, engineers, inventors, managers, investors, and more to share and discuss new approaches for solving the ocean’s biggest challenges. Focal areas will include ocean-based solutions to the climate crisis, equitable coastal solutions strategies for resilience and adaptation, building marine circular economies, the linkages between oceans and human health, and moving science and engineering from academia into sustainable businesses.
Ocean Visions’ Experts to Advise/Evaluate Innovation Tackling Ocean Acidification
Ocean Visions is pleased to announce an advisory relationship with the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Stony Brook University to pilot and evaluate an electrochemical approach aimed at mitigating ocean acidification and enhancing ocean carbon sequestration. The project is called SEA MATE: Safe Elevation of Alkalinity for the Mitigation of Acidification Through Electrochemistry. An Ocean Visions’ Expert Team will provide scientific review and guidance on the design of experiments, data analysis, hypothesis testing, and safe operating thresholds.
