IOCCP workshop on Marine Carbon and Biogeochemistry Data Management and Synthesis (ICDC10 side event)
- IOCCP Events
- 23.08.2017 12:30 pm - 6:30 pm
The International Ocean Carbon Coordination Project (IOCCP) promotes and coordinates the development and implementation of a global network of ocean biogeochemical observations.
Ensuring sustainable data management from observations through to data synthesis and value added products is one of the main services the Project provides. IOCCP has traditionally focused on carbon and supporting variables. However, by taking the lead of the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) Biogeochemistry Expert Panel, the IOCCP has expanded its brief to include Biogeochemistry Essential Ocean Variables (EOVs), as part of the Integrated Framework for Sustained Ocean Observing.
The IOCCP workshop on “Marine Carbon and Biogeochemistry Data Management and Synthesis” will bring together the communities engaged in delivering to and using existing and planned marine carbon and biogeochemistry data products, such as the Surface Ocean Carbon Dioxide Atlas (SOCAT) or the Global Ocean Data Analysis Project (GLODAP).
Based on lessons learned during the development of SOCAT and GLODAP, the aim is to discuss (i) the challenges and opportunities related to connecting the carbon and biogeochemistry data currently available from several sources globally, and (ii) the need to build an integrated access point for different carbon and biogeochemistry data types from major observing platforms (ships, moorings, floats, gliders).
Moreover, the sessions will discuss a pathway towards extending the existing and planned data products beyond primarily carbonate chemistry measurements and into a full scope of Biogeochemistry EOVs, which in many cases are measured using novel sensor technology.
The workshop will include presentations and discussions in 5 main session themes. Below please find a preliminary agenda.
