IOCCP is heavily engaged in shaping the community vision and recommendations for sustained marine biogeochemistry and integrated ocean observations for the next decade. With the OceanObs'19 Conference just around the corner, we encourage you to take a look at a number of Community White Papers already published in the special issue of Frontiers in Marine Science. There you can read about the proposed future ocean governance models, lessons learnt from implementing the Framework for Ocean Observing, but also about challenges and recommendations from the GOA-ON, SOCONET, ARGO networks or the
On behalf of the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) we are excited to announce that the GOA-ON Implementation Strategy was officially launched at the 4th GOA-ON International Workshop, held in Hangzhou, China on 14-17 April. This document outlines how to implement the GOA-ON Requirements and Governance Plan, including expanding ocean acidification observations, closing human and technology capacity gaps, connecting scientists regionally and globally, and informing about the impacts of
We are happy to let you know that the 4th Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) International Workshop (http://www.goa-on2019.com/en/index.html) will be held in Hangzhou, China from 14 to 17 April 2019. The Workshop, co-sponsored by IOCCP, will bring together scientists from around the world to discuss emerging aspects from the coupled effects of ocean acidification with multi-stressors, review global ocean acidification status and forecast capabilities, and explore opportunities for capacity development. The workshop is consisted of various events to facilitate an open, multi-level and comprehensive communication
The Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO invite you to take part in a survey on ocean acidification research and observation data. Your answers to this survey will help trace where ocean acidification data is being collected, and where it is stored and served, to facilitate reporting on one of the indicators of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14, 'Life below water'. SDG14 Target 3 on ocean acidification calls to 'minimize and address the impacts of ocean acidification, including through enhanced scientific cooperation at all levels'. IOC-UNESCO is the custodian agency for the
We would like to let you know that during its 51st Executive Council Meeting in July 2018, the Member States of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO welcomed the Methodology for the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Target Indicator 14.3.1. The SDG Target Indicator 14.3.1 calls for "average marine acidity measured at an agreed suite of representative sampling stations". The Methodology provides guidance to scientists and countries about how to carry out measurements following the best practices established by experts in the ocean acidification community, including members of the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) and IOCCP, and explains how to report the collected information.
The Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network Executive Council and the Organizing Committee would like to invite you to participate in this focused workshop following the 4th International Symposium on Oceans in a High CO2 World.
