7th EGO Conference on Autonomous Ocean Gliders & their Applications, 26-29 September 2016, Southampton, UK
Tuesday, 24 05 2016
The 7th EGO (Everyone's Gliding Observatory) conference will be held from 26th to 29th September, 2016, at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) in Southampton, the United Kingdom. The use of gliders is now widespread but there remains a need for a forum in which scientists, engineers, students and industry can exchange knowledge and experiences on the development of glider technology and on the application of gliders in oceanographic research and in ocean observing systems.
The call for abstracts closes on 27th June 2016, 23:00 UTC.

The Science and Technology Ministers of the G7 (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, UK, US) and the EU met in Tsukuba City, Japan on May 15-17 to discuss science, technology and innovation aspects across global challenges such as health, energy, agriculture and the environment. In their communiqué, the G7 ministers support the enhancement of multidisciplinary sustained global ocean observing system, promote open data sharing infrastructure and call for an enhanced system of ocean assessments.
Ocean ventilation and deoxygenation in a warming world - discussion meeting, 12-13 September 2016, The Royal Society, London, UK
Friday, 20 05 2016
We would like to let you know that a scientific discussion meeting on "Ocean ventilation and deoxygenation in a warming world" will take place at the Royal Society of London, UK on 12-13 September 2016. This meeting will discuss the less obvious but important indirect impacts of climate change on the oceans. Increased stratification will affect ocean circulation and ventilation, and lead to reduced upwelling and deep water formation. This will reduce oxygenation through (still uncertain) interactions with biological production and remineralisation, with potential socio-economic consequences on fisheries and ecosystems.
The event is free but advance registration is essential (max capacity: 280).
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…
