We would like to remind you about the abstract submission deadline for the 10th International Carbon Dioxide Conference (ICDC10) approaching on 15 March 2017. At the same time we would like to inform you about an IOCCP half-day workshop on “Marine Carbon and Biogeochemistry Data Management and Synthesis” which will take place on Wednesday, 23rd August 2017 as an official part of the Conference.
The IOCCP side-event on "Marine Carbon and Biogeochemistry Data Management and Synthesis" will highlight the accomplishments, plans and challenges of 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). The organizers encourage participation of colleagues across domains and specialties and use this opportunity to share their perspectives on presented subjects.
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, and (ii) the need to build an integrated access point for several carbon and biogeochemistry data types from various 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 side-event will include presentations and discussions in 5 main themes. Below please find a preliminary agenda.
