We would like to inform you about the publication of “A user's guide for selected autonomous biogeochemical sensors” now available for download as PDF from the IOCCP website HERE. The guide presents a final outcome of the 1st International IOCCP Sensors Summer Course held in 2015 in Kristineberg, Sweden. This user’s guide provides easy-to-follow steps on the usage (including preparation, deployment, recovery and basic data processing) of selected autonomous biogeochemical sensors which measure oxygen, nitrate, pCO2 and pH.

We would like to let you know that the Global Carbon Budget 2017 has now been published. Please see the Global Carbon Project website (http://www.globalcarbonproject.org) to access the highlights, paper, data, and a myriad of figures, infographics and videos related to the annual update of the global carbon budget and trends for the year 2016, and projections for 2017. You may also want to visit the Global Carbon Atlas http://www.globalcarbonatlas.org to explore in detail global and national CO2 emissions.

The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) is launching an open review of the current requirements for Essential Climate Variables (ECV) that are the basis for the global systematic observation of the climate system. GCOS would like to invite as wide a possible range of reviewers to participate. This is the first step in a revision and update of the requirements planned for 2021/2. Revisions to the existing ECV and ECV products or proposals for new ECV or ECV products can be made and support for the existing requirements is also encouraged. These requirements are intended to be user requirements: what is needed by users. We encourage the marine biogeochemistry community to review these user requirements, in particular the ones set for Ocean Biogeochemistry ECVs: Inorganic Carbon, Nitrous Oxide, Nutrients, Ocean Colour, Oxygen and Transient Tracers - all of which have their corresponding Essential Ocean Variables (EOVs) as defined by GOOS.

Upcoming IOCCP Events
The IOCCP promotes the development of a global network of ocean carbon observations for research through technical coordination and communication services, international agreements on standards and methods, and advocacy and links to the global observing systems. The IOCCP is co-sponsored by the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO. Read more…
