We would like to let you know that the workshop report from the '2nd Air-Sea Gas Flux: Progress and Future Prospects' workshop is now available to download from HERE. The scientific workshop, held in September 2016 in Brest, France, was organized by the OceanFlux Greenhouse Gases Evolution project as a forum to bring the international and interdisciplinary air-sea gas flux scientific community together to present recent advances, report results from key initiatives and importantly to identify new goals, challenges and opportunities.
The participants discussed among other things, the current state of the marine component of the global carbon observing system, and the need for the 'flux community' to use standard techniques, data formats and common tools, e.g. binning tools that are used and/or needed by communities measuring carbon dioxide fluxes (Surface Ocean CO2 Atlas - SOCAT) and nitrous oxide/methane fluxes (MarinE MethanE and NiTrous Oxide - MEMENTO).

We are happy to let you know that the Latin American Ocean Acidification (LAOCA) Network has recently launched its website - http://laoca.cl/en/ - which is now accessible in English, Spanish and Portuguese! The mission of LAOCA is to communicate and enhance understanding of ocean acidification process in Latin America, and its interaction with other local processes and their impact on marine ecosystems and their services through international cooperation. IOCCP, as a partner of LAOCA, actively promotes standards and best practices for marine biogeochemistry observations as well as provides technical training on measurement, data handling and data management procedures (Technical workshop on carbonate system measurements) for Latin American colleagues. LAOCA has now also announced the 1st Latin American Symposium in Ocean Acidification, which will be held at Cultural Centre for the Sciencies of CONICET in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from the 23 to 26 October 2017.
