Modern Observational Oceanography Course, 4-22 July, 2016, St.George's, Bermuda
Tuesday, 08 March 2016
The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) has scheduled a Modern Observational Oceanography summer course for July 4 - July 22, 2016. The course integrates lectures, laboratory training, and fieldwork to introduce students to current research questions and the observational methods used to investigate them. Themes will include carbon and nutrient cycling, carbonate chemistry and ocean acidification, ocean-atmosphere interactions, and the spatial/temporal scales of physical ocean processes. This course is open to senior undergraduate and postgraduate students enrolled in oceanography programs.
The BIOS summer course application deadline is April 17th, 2016.
Global synthesis product of seafloor surficial carbonate
Monday, 07 March 2016
We would like to inform you about a new global synthesis product of seafloor surficial carbonate, which follows early work by Archer (1996). To interface with climate and circulation models, ocean substrates data have been gridded from dbSEABED (Information Integration System for Marine Substrates) at the global scale, at a 1/10° resolution. The new mapping suggests lower carbonate contents overall than mapped in earlier works. This may affect modeled budgets for earth-system carbon dioxide and outcomes for ocean acidification.
An Internally Consistent Dataset of δ13C-DIC Data in the North Atlantic Ocean
Thursday, 03 March 2016
We would like to let you know that An Internally Consistent Dataset of δ13C-DIC Data in the North Atlantic Ocean (NAC13v1) is now available for download from CDIAC. The dataset has undergone strict quality control. It includes all in all 6068 samples, originating from oceanographic research cruises that took place between 1981 and 2012. The dataset by Becker et al. is currently under review for publishing in Earth System Science Data (ESSD).

2016 Call for SCOR Working Group Proposals
Wednesday, 17 February 2016
The Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) is accepting proposals for 2016 SCOR Working Groups from now until 17 April 2016. SCOR will approve new working groups at its annual meeting, this year held in Sopot, Poland on 5-7 September 2016.
The 2016 POGO-SCOR Visiting Fellowships programme is now open for applications
Tuesday, 09 February 2016
The Partnership for Observations of the Global Oceans (POGO) and the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) are jointly funding a Visiting Fellowships programme designed to promote training and capacity building leading towards a global observation scheme for the oceans. The Programme has been a success for over fifteen years, with over 160 fellowships awarded since 2001. The fellowship programme is open to scientists, technicians, graduate students (preferably PhD) and post-doctoral fellows involved in oceanographic work at centres in developing countries and countries with economies in transition.
The deadline for the applications for this year is 15th April 2016.

Tuesday, 09 February 2016
We would like to inform you that MARIANDA prepares a training workshop for alkalinity and dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) measurements in sea water. The workshop will be held on April 25-29, 2016 in Kiel, Germany. The planning of the workshop is in its initial stage and we appreciate any feedback and suggestions.
Marine Chemistry Special Issue: Cycles of metals and carbon in the oceans - A tribute to the work stimulated by Hein de Baar
Monday, 08 February 2016
A very interesting compilation of articles on topics ranging from photo-oxidation and changes in nutrient distributions, to drivers of seasonality of CO2 and its fluxes in the Southern Ocean, published in Marine Chemistry Special Issue: Cycles of metals and carbon in the oceans – A tribute to the work stimulated by Hein de Baar, available here.
International consultation confirms EU’s crucial role in ocean governance
Friday, 05 February 2016
We are pleased to let you know that the EU Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Karmenu Vella, announced today the results of the Commission's public consultation on international ocean governance at the SeaWeb Seafood Summit in Malta.
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…
