Welcome to OASeS, the Ocean Acidification Sentinel Site
The Ocean Acidification Sentinel Site (OASeS) on the Olympic Coast of Washington state will focus on ocean acidification (OA) related science and identify trends in carbonate chemistry and hypoxia. The sentinel site will be used to inform resource managers and coastal communities by telling the story of OA and its impacts on both Washington coastal marine resources, coastal cultures, communities, and economies. OASeS will seek to ensure that the Olympic Coast is well prepared for changing ocean conditions, with research and management actions in place.

The Olympic Coast Ocean Acidification Sentinel Site is seeking two Community-At-Large representatives to serve in a two-year term on the OASeS Steering Committee. Apply by October 31, 2023.
