We would like to let you know that during its 51st Executive Council Meeting in July 2018, the Member States of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO welcomed the Methodology for the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Target Indicator 14.3.1. The SDG Target Indicator 14.3.1 calls for "average marine acidity measured at an agreed suite of representative sampling stations". The Methodology provides guidance to scientists and countries about how to carry out measurements following the best practices established by experts in the ocean acidification community, including members of the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) and IOCCP, and explains how to report the collected information. You can view the accepted Methodology, available in English, French, Spanish and Russian HERE.

We are happy to share a recently published Summary for Policy Makers on "Declining Oxygen in the World's Ocean and Coastal Waters" developed by the Global Ocean Oxygen Network (GO2NE).
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…
