The Strategic Plan for Federal Research and Monitoring was written by the Interagency Working Group on Ocean Acidification, and published in March 2014. It provides a thoughtful and strategic approach to understand and address the rapidly emerging problem of ocean acidification. It's intended to guide federal ocean acidification investments and activities over the next decade and beyond. It will provide a better understanding of the process of ocean acidification, its effects on marine ecosystems, and the steps that must be taken to minimize harm from ocean acidification. Seven priority areas were identified 1) research, 2) monitoring, 3) modeling, 4) technology development, 5) socioeconomic impacts, 6) education and outreach and 7) data management.
