Join “Pier-2-Peer” – the new Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) mentorship initiative
Wednesday, 27 April 2016
The Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) is launching “Pier-2-Peer”, the new GOA-ON mentorship program, to match senior scientists with ocean acidification expertise with new GOA-ON members to support the development of OA monitoring (chemical to biological) in emerging regions. In the future, GOA-ON leadership hopes to secure financial support for travel and other training activities for mentors and mentees participating in GOA-ON’s Pier-2-Peer mentoring program.
Review of SCOR Working Group Proposals
Monday, 25 April 2016
Eleven working group proposals that have been submitted to the SCOR Secretariat for consideration at the 2016 SCOR General Meeting are available on the SCOR Web site. The Executive Committee will be very grateful for comments from SCOR National Committees, individuals, and interested organizations to assist in the review of these proposals. This is, in fact, one of the most important ways in which SCOR’s National Committees and cooperating organizations can provide input to SCOR on scientific priorities. SCOR WG proposal reviews are due to Ed Urban, Executive Director of SCOR, by 1 August 2016.

GOA-ON survey: update on the map of Ocean Acidification platforms and observing activities
Thursday, 31 March 2016
The Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) seeks community input guiding its development and, specifically, to inform the 3rd GOA-ON Science Workshop in Hobart in May 2016. The community's feedback is sought via a short survey available at http://goo.gl/forms/qAu5bYBSsJ. The survey considers two topics: 1) updates to the GOA-ON map - an interactive representation of OA platforms and observing activities (including biogeochemical sensors), and 2) biological observations that can be used to monitor the impact from OA. Survey respondents can choose to fill out only the sections they find relevant.
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…
