About SOCAN 

The Southeast Ocean and Coastal Acidification Network (SOCAN) works directly with scientists, resource managers, industry experts and educators to facilitate research and discussion to address coastal and ocean acidification impacts in the U.S. Southeast.

Formed in February 2015, the Southeast Ocean and Coastal Acidification Network (SOCAN) is an interdisciplinary network of scientists, resource managers, and industry, non-profit, and government representatives dedicated to supporting and encouraging discussions on ocean and coastal acidification in the Southeast. Our members have expertise in chemical, biological, and physical oceanography, coastal processes, communications, data science, aquaculture, and many other physical and social sciences.


SOCAN is continually supported by the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration’s Ocean Acidification Program and the Southeast Coastal Ocean Observing Regional Association (SECOORA).
