On November 13th- 14th , 2006, The World Ocean Observatory 
<http://www.thew2o.net/> will present an online, interactive web-cast on 
Ocean Acidification. This is a unique opportunity for students, 
educators and interested individuals to participate in the first 
demonstration of an ongoing series of global online events to explore 
ocean issues. Those who attend this 45 minute event hosted in Australia 
will participate in a real-time interactive presentations and 
discussions with leading scientists around the world.

The basic chemistry of our oceans is changing as they absorb carbon 
dioxide released into the atmosphere by human activities. This decrease 
in the ocean's pH and the resulting increase in acidity is called ocean 
acidification. Present evidence suggests that dramatic changes in the 
marine environment over the next 100-200 years can be avoided only with 
early and deep reductions in carbon dioxide emissions.

Please find below detailed description of the World Ocean Forum's Ocean 
Acidification Online Event.
We invite you to join us for our first event broadcast on Monday, 
November 13th , 2006 at 5:30pm Eastern Standard Time. We have 
approximately 100 spaces available, please respond as soon as possible 
to ensure your place in the forum.

Please reply to info at thew2o.net <mailto:info at thew2o.net> if you are 
interested in attending this online event. Log-in details will be provided.

The World Ocean Observatory <http://www.thew2o.net> (w2o) is a central 
place of exchange for global information, education and public discourse 
about the ocean. It serves as an independent forum and focus for ocean 
affairs. Its intent is to communicate the full spectrum of ocean issues 
- climate, conservation, biology and ecology, fresh water, food, energy, 
commerce and transportation, public health, finance, governance, 
recreation and culture - to citizens worldwide as a realization that the 
sea connects all things.

Please join us as we launch */Ocean Acidification/*, the first of our 
exciting Online Events.
Thank you,
The World Ocean Observatory
