Building on this momentum, Stanford’s Center for Ocean Solutions (COS) and the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment partnered with the Ocean Protection Council and the Southern California Coastal Water Resources Project to host an Uncommon Dialogue titled Ocean Acidification: Setting Water Quality Goals.

Held on October 17–18, 2016, the meeting brought together experts from the academic, NGO, philanthropic, and California, Oregon and Washington state and federal management community to discuss research priorities. The meeting served as a critical starting point for strategic discussion around the need for, and content of, new OA water quality goals.
