Alaska Ocean Acidification Network
Cordova High School’s national ocean science bowl team, the “PhotosyntheSistahs”, focused on ocean acidification at the recent statewide competition in February.
Q.) We heard your research for the National Ocean Science Bowl won first prize. What led you to choose this topic?
The assignment of the research project was to design an ocean observing platform that would address a question or threat to our local community. We knew right away that we wanted to focus on threats to salmon as they are a huge economic and cultural resource in our community. From there it was an easy connection to make with Ocean Acidification and the potential negative impacts it will have on salmon and salmon prey. Ocean Acidification is a widespread and growing issue that not only affects our local community, but everyone and we wanted to address that in our research.
