We are very happy to inform you that the GLODAPv2_2019 data product has been released on March 26, 2019, during the First International AtlantOS Symposium in Paris. The Global Ocean Data Analysis Project (GLODAP) is a data synthesis activity of carbon-relevant ocean interior data by a consortium of international marine scientists. The EU project AtlantOS supported the new release, together with the IOCCP and numerous national funding bodies, universities and research institutes.
GLODAPv2_2019 is an incremental update of the GLODAPv2 data product released in 2016. Data from 116 new cruises have been added and small errors in the previous GLODAPv2 data product have been corrected. GLODAPv2_2019 contains data from 840 cruises with more than 1.1 million Niskin bottle sample analyses covering all oceans from 1972 through 2017.

We would like to let you know that following its 20th Annual Meeting, held in Mindelo, Cabo Verde, in January 2019, the Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean (POGO) has issued the Cabo Verde Declaration on Ocean Observations. In this Statement, the Directors of around 40 major oceanographic institutions call, in unison, on Governments worldwide to provide sustained support for ocean observations through a fully operational Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS). The Statement highlights the societal benefits derived from ocean observations and emphasises the currently insufficient resources available for international coordination for the scale of the work that is required as well as the need for full engagement of the developing world.

The Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean (POGO) and Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) are pleased to announce that the POGO-SCOR Visiting Fellowship programme for 2019 is now open for applications. The scheme is designed to promote training and capacity development, leading towards a global observation scheme for the ocean, and is aimed at scientists, technicians, graduate students (preferably PhD) and post-doctoral fellows involved in oceanographic work at centres in developing countries and countries with economies in transition. Priority is given to applicants in the early stages of their career development. The fellowship offers the opportunity to visit other oceanographic centres for a short period (1 to 3 months) for training on aspects of oceanographic observations, analyses, and interpretation. It provides financial support to cover the return airfare from the fellow's home country to the host institution, and a contribution towards accommodation and subsistence for the period of the visit.
The deadline for applications is 30 April 2019. For more information and details on how to apply please see: http://ocean-partners.org/pogo-scor-fellowship. All applications should be submitted through http://www.marinetraining.eu/POGOSCOR19. Please e-mail pogoadmin[at]pml.ac.uk should you have any queries and feel free to circulate this announcement to anyone you think might be interested.
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…
