The Ocean Literacy Campaign ad-hoc committee announced the publication of a new version of “Ocean Literacy: The Essential Principles and Fundamental Concepts of Ocean Sciences for Learners of All Ages.” This guide (here) replaces the version first published in July 2005.
Some of these changes include: an additional concept for Essential Principle 4 that describes the role of the ocean in providing water, oxygen, and nutrients and moderating climate as well as the integration of ocean acidification into existing concepts.
The new guide also adds information on how the guide has been used in the past eight years; describes related international developments; and provides links to social networks for the Ocean Literacy Campaign on Facebook and Twitter.
