50th International Liege Colloquium on Ocean Dynamics, 28 May - 1 June 2018, Liège, Belgium
Tuesday, 07 November 2017
We would like to let you know that in 2018 there will be the 50th edition of the International Liege Colloquium of Ocean Dynamics, a perfect reason to celebrate and review the advances made in studying the oceans during the last several decades. In particular, this edition will be dedicated to long-term studies in oceanography. Our knowledge about the ocean has changed dramatically over these past 50 years, as is the availability and quality of data and tools to study the ocean. The Colloquium will be held from 28 May to 1 June 2018 at the University of Liège in Liège, Belgium. We invite abstracts in the study of the ocean using long-term datasets, based on in situ data, remote sensing data, model simulations and reanalyses. Works that evidence the importance of maintaining in time the in situ and remote sensing datasets, and review studies that provide a perspective of the advancement of science during the last decades using these long-term datasets are also welcome.
Deadline for abstract submissions: 19 January 2018

7th International SOLAS Summer School - apply by November 15
Monday, 09 October 2017
Applications are now welcome for the 7th International Surface Ocean - Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS) Summer School which will take place on 23rd July - 4th August 2018 in Cargèse, Corsica, France. The SOLAS Summer School brings together over 70 students and 15 world-leading international scientists, in a variety of fields, for a combination of lectures and practical workshops. It aims to teach the skills and knowledge of the many disciplines needed to understand the nature of ocean-atmosphere interactions and how to link ocean-atmosphere interactions with climate and people. It allows doctoral students and early-career researchers to see how their work fits into the broad canvas of SOLAS, and global change research more generally.
Deadline for applications: 15 November 2017

The XPRIZE Big Ocean Button Challenge: Vote Now!
Friday, 29 September 2017
We would like to point your attention to the Big Ocean Button Challenge, an app competition sponsored by the XPRIZE Ocean Initiative, to advance development in ocean data sets in categories such as Fishing, Shipping and Trade, Ocean Acidification, Public Safety and Exploration. There are 20 amazing submissions that are now competing for $100,000 in prizes and XPRIZE is asking us to help them decide the winning solutions. Please visit the Big Ocean Button Challenge page to view the apps and cast your vote: https://herox.com/bigoceanbutton. You are encouraged to vote for the mobile app that best unlocks ocean data for public or private benefit, ideally while supporting responsible use and protection of our ocean. The Big Ocean Button Challenge is a smaller competition held as part of the XPRIZE Ocean Initiative efforts which started in 2010 with a call to develop 5 Ocean focused XPRIZE competitions by 2020.
Voting for the Big Ocean Button Challenge will remain open until 5pm PST on October 19th and the winners will be announced early in 2018.

SOLAS-IMBER-IOCCP-GCP-CLIVAR-WCRP Meeting on future ocean carbon cycle research
Friday, 22 September 2017
In April 2017, SOLAS and IMBER have disbanded their two carbon working groups that, based on the Joint SOLAS/IMBER Carbon Implementation Plan, were charged with coordination and synthesis of ocean carbon research related to both: ocean surface and ocean interior. Seeking new science directions, SOLAS and IMBER proposed an open discussion amongst all and any programs interested in ocean carbon research. IOCCP, GCP, CLIVAR, WCRP C-challenge and SOLAS and IMBER representatives expressed interest in such discussion and an initial, scoping side-meeting during the ICDC10 in Interlaken was organized. The meeting was attended by 13 participants representing the above mentioned programs and was chaired by Nicolas Gruber, a former chair of the SOLAS/IMBER Carbon Working Group 2.
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…
