SOCAT at a critical single point of failure!
Monday, 25 September 2023
We would like to draw your attention to a recently released document titled "Case for SOCAT as an integral part of the value chain advising UNFCCC on ocean CO2 uptake" which aims to highlight the importance of consistent funding for SOCAT. The authors of the document request that funding agencies work with SOCAT to
- provide emergency support over 2024-25 to ensure that the next two Global Carbon Budgets can contain an ocean element and
- from 2026 transition SOCAT into a sustainable funding space based on nations underwriting its core elements, national hubs, a subscription-based model, or a mix of these.

Save the date: The 11th International Carbon Dioxide Conference (ICDC11), Manaus, Brazil, 29 July - 2 August 2024
Friday, 25 August 2023
This is to let you know that the 11th International Carbon Dioxide Conference (ICDC11) will be hosted in Manaus, Brazil from 29 July to 2 August 2024, at the Vasco Vasques Convention Center. ICDC11 was originally planned for 2021 but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent logistical challenges. Manaus was selected to allow visitors to experience a taste of the Amazon, a region central to understanding the global carbon cycle.
Taking place in the heart of Amazon, amidst an El Niño, and on the heels of the first Global Stocktake, ICDC11 represents an important opportunity to consider how improved understanding of terrestrial and oceanic carbon fluxes can inform carbon management and mitigation policy. The conference will provide the platform to have a dialogue between communities focused on understanding our latest science, technological capabilities and the needs, priorities and open questions of the policy and management communities.
OOI Biogeochemical Sensor Data Best Practices and User Guide. Version 1.1.1. is available now
Wednesday, 23 August 2023
We are pleased to inform you about releasing the updated version of the OOI Biogeochemical Sensor Data Best Practices and User Guide. The newest Version 1.1.1. after being reviewed by the biogeochemistry community, was endorsed by IOCCP as GOOS Biogeochemistry Panel of Experts. The current version is available here: https://repository.oceanbestpractices.org/handle/11329/2112.2
The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) Biogeochemical (BGC) Sensor Data Best Practices and User Guide is the result of an NSF-funded (OCE2033919) grass-roots community effort to broaden the use of OOI biogeochemical sensor data and increase community capacity to produce analysis-ready data products. The guide includes five chapters: The Introduction (Chapter 1) provides information on the OOI program, including data access, processing, and recommended end user QA/QC relevant to all OOI biogeochemical sensors, and Chapters 2-5 cover the following groups of BGC variables and associated sensors: Dissolved oxygen, nitrate, carbonate chemistry, and bio-optics.
For more information about the product of the OOI Biogeochemical Sensor Data (OOI BGC) Working Group, please read the full article: https://www.us-ocb.org/ooi-dataset-community/
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…
