The NOAA Ocean and Great Lakes Acidification Research Plan was written by the NOAA Ocean Acidification Steering Committee, and published in April 2010. It outlines how to approach the goals laid out in the Federal Ocean Acidification Research and Monitoring Act (FOARAM; 33 U.S.C. Chapter 50, Sec. 3701-3708). The rational for the NOAA Ocean Acidification Program, the research, resources, and relevant ocean acidification issues in each of the six regions in the U.S (including the West Coast, Pacific Islands, Southeast Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico., Northeast, and Great Lakes) are included.
