A virtual workshop building on the priorities of the G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative will be held to explore the applications of a global data-stream from the Biogeochemical-Argo array in fisheries, carbon budget verification, and environmental forecasting. The impetus for the workshop is the G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative for better ocean observations to ensure sustainable use by future generations; and the recent funding by the US National Science Foundation of a $53 million project, Global Ocean Biogeochemistry Array (GO-BGC), to deploy 500 Biogeochemical-Argo profiling floats throughout the world ocean is an important step in this direction.
The workshop will be held over a series of Tuesdays in May (4, 11, 18, 25) and June (1). The audience for the workshop is global, and to accommodate a global audience, the workshop sessions will be repeated twice each day at 14:00 UTC and 23:00 UTC. Many of the presentations will be pre-recorded and available a week before each session starts. A provisional agenda is available here.

Building a Community of Biogeochemistry Float Data Users - Virtual Workshop on the New Global Ocean Biogeochemistry (GO-BGC) Array, 28-30 June 2021
Monday, 22 March 2021
Save the date for the upcoming virtual workshop on the New Global Ocean Biogeochemistry (GO-BGC) Array: Building a Community of Biogeochemistry Float Data Users. The Global Ocean Biogeochemistry (GO-BGC) array is a 5-year effort funded by the US National Science Foundation to produce and deploy 500 profiling floats equipped with biogeochemical sensors in the world ocean, starting in the first quarter of 2021.
To inform and engage a broad oceanographic user community, the Ocean Carbon & Biogeochemistry (OCB) and the US Climate Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR) Programs are working with GO-BGC leadership to plan a virtual GO-BGC Scientific Workshop from June 28-30, 2021. The objectives of the workshop are to: (i) Introduce the GO-BGC plan to the global scientific community; (ii) Discuss and innovate on scientific applications of GO-BGC data; (iii) Provide background information on the flow of data and archiving; and (iv) Deliver hands-on tutorials and computer code for accessing GO-BGC data. Presentations and discussions will be scheduled for 3-4 hours on each day. Some presentations will be prerecorded and available online prior to each day’s events for viewing, so that participants can consider discussion items before the meeting. The organizers look forward to a large online participation in the meeting as this new, multi-year program gets underway.
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…
