We are happy to inform you that the report from the XIV Session of the IOCCP Scientific Steering Group & Global Ocean Observing System Biogeochemistry Panel of Experts (IOCCP-SSG-14) has been published. You can read and download the report in PDF from our site HERE.
The report summarises the current status and future plans related to IOCCP's coordination activities for each of our themes. We hope that you will find the report informative and many of you will become involved in the activities that the SSG planned for the months to come. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions and comments.
Recommendations for plankton measurements on the GO-SHIP program with relevance to other sea-going expeditions
Thursday, 06 February 2020
We are happy to let you know about a new publication from SCOR WG 154 P-OBS (Integration of Plankton-Observing Sensor Systems to Existing Global Sampling Programs; https://scor-int.org/group/154/). In "Recommendations for plankton measurements on the GO-SHIP program with relevance to other sea-going expeditions" the authors present mature technologies to measure plankton activity as a combination of biomass and diversity indicators across the plankton size spectrum, and demonstrate their readiness to be deployed within the GO-SHIP constraints. The document provides a significant step towards enhancing capacity for open-ocean biological observations, and another milestone towards an integrated ocean observing system. The document is available from OBPS at: https://www.oceanbestpractices.net/handle/11329/1201. Please cite as follows:

Thanks to the work of Matthew Humphreys (NIOZ, the Netherlands), the marine carbonate system calculations with CO2SYS (original package written in MATLAB) are now available in the Python and Julia programming languages. You can download the code and access the full documentation from the respective GitHub repositories.
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…
