With less than 2 weeks left to the 10th International Carbon Dioxide Conference (ICDC10), we would like to remind you about IOCCP half-day workshop on “Marine Carbon and Biogeochemistry Data Management and Synthesis” which will take place in the afternoon of Wednesday, 23 August 2017, as an official part of the Conference. This exciting side event will highlight the accomplishments, plans and challenges of communities engaged in delivering to and using existing and planned marine carbon and biogeochemistry data products. Moreover, as SOCAT is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, we are happy to invite all SOCAT contributors, users and their travel companions to take part in a 'SOCAT at 10' festive dinner planned for the evening of Wednesday, 23 August 2017, at 19:00.
The IOCCP side event on "Marine Carbon and Biogeochemistry Data Management and Synthesis"
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 divided into 5 main theme sessions. Below please find the agenda and a detailed programme for each session.

'SOCAT at 10' festive dinner
On behalf of the SOCAT Team, we would like to cordially invite all SOCAT contributors, users providing feedback and their travel companions to join us for a festive dinner to celebrate the 10th anniversary of SOCAT. SOCAT was created in April 2007 at the Surface Ocean CO2 Variability and Vulnerabilities (SOCOVV) workshop at UNESCO in Paris. Its development over the past 10 years has turned out to be a tremendous success.
The 'SOCAT at 10' dinner will take place at the Acrobaleno ristorante starting at 19:00 CET. Dinner is self-paid. The cost per person is 31 Swiss Francs for the meal (drinks come on top).
In your email please also indicate the following:
- number and names of dinner guests
