Over the past decade marine sciences experience a surge in the volume of data from in-situ collection, satellite missions and earth system model simulations. Scientists are increasingly faced with the emerging challenge of analysing and synthesising collected data, which are often too big and complex to detect temporal (diurnal to decadal) and spatial (local to global) variability or secular trends using traditional statistical approaches. Greater than ever proportion of the community has turned to advanced statistical and machine learning methods to integrate, analyse and synthetize these multi-platform data. The utility of these methods has been demonstrated in many areas of Earth Science, and is now also becoming apparent in ocean physics, air-sea interactions, ocean biogeochemical cycles, and marine ecology. This has resulted in the proliferation of data products that straddle oceanography and data science.
We invite scientists in this exciting intersection to submit abstracts for the session titled: "Novel data-analysis techniques for big data applications in marine science" (OS034). The session is open for submissions in the field of ocean physics, chemistry and/or biology but also those connecting the spheres, such as air-sea and air-land interactions.

We would like to let you know that an international conference on glider data management "Connecting glider data flows in Europe and beyond" will be held on 18-20 September 2018, at the Aquario du Genova, in Genoa, Italy. This meeting intends to open a 2.5 days forum dedicated to glider data management issues. Initiated by the EuroGOOS Glider Task team and aligned with the objectives of the GOOS-endorsed program OceanGliders, it will focus on technical and strategic issues related to the Everyone's Gliding Observatories (EGO) format and real time/delayed mode, and physical as well as biogeochemical gliders data management. Particular attention will be paid on discussions and provision of guidance on data management to the new glider teams willing to contribute to the global ocean observing system. A workshop session dedicated to the installation of the data management capacity in your institution is planned. The organization of this session is at the moment an option and will depend on the number of interested persons.
To attend the meeting, please fill in the registration form. Event registration must be completed at least one month prior to the event.
From COP21 towards the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030)
Wednesday, 06 June 2018
In view of the launching of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021–2030), the Ocean and Climate Platform and IOC-UNESCO are organizing a High Level Scientific Conference on 10 and 11 September 2018, at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris. The conference aims at synthesizing recent scientific progress on ocean and climate interplays; evaluating the latest ocean-climate trends within the context of increased ocean action; and reflecting on ways to move "from science to action". Organized around four sessions, the event will bring together scientists from multiple disciplines, civil society, businesses, decision-makers and UN entities, to share their expertise on ocean and climate related issues.

XIII Session of the IOCCP SSG
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…
