Setting Observing Targets for Biogeochemical Observing System in the Atlantic
Tuesday, 06 December 2016
In the context of the EU AtlantOS Project, IOCCP started it's work towards defining quantifiable targets for the biogeochemical observing system. As with development of Essential Ocean Variables we hope for a wide community input over time. The first step of this effort is to focus on the Atlanic Ocean before expanding the process to other basins.
Second inter-laboratory comparison of sea water carbon dioxide measurements
Monday, 05 December 2016
A second inter-laboratory comparison of seawater CO2 measurements is planned for the second quarter of 2017. The goal of this comparison is to assess the present quality of seawater CO2 measurements for total alkalinity, total dissolved inorganic carbon, and pH. We encourage all laboratories to participate, whether they participated in 2013 or not.

Call for expert nominations for the Author Team for the Atlantic Ocean Observing System Blueprint 2019
Wednesday, 23 November 2016
We would like to let you know about the call for expert nominations for the Author Team for the Atlantic Ocean Observing System Blueprint 2019. The rationale for developing the Blueprint, to be delivered for the OceanObs19 conference, is to advance the current ocean observing system components to obtain an international, more sustainable, more efficient, more integrated, and fit-for-purpose ocean observing system, coordinated through the UNESCO-IOC Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS). Self-nomination for the Blueprint Author Team can be submitted under the following website: https://www.surveymonkey.de/r/B8GSSFX. Such a group will benefit from the work of EU Horizon 2020 AtlantOS and similar projects.
The deadline for applications is the 6 January 2017.

Everyone’s Gliding Observatories (EGO) Newsletter #1
Monday, 14 November 2016
We are pleased to let you know that the Everyone's Gliding Observatories (EGO) Team has released its first EGO Newsletter. In this issue you will find information on the 7th EGO meeting (access to meeting documents upon registration), and the first "OceanGliders" (glider component of the Global Ocean Observing System) meeting report, among other news items.
Biogeochemical Argo - Newsletter #1 and website launched
Thursday, 10 November 2016
The Biogeochemical-Argo program, co-chaired by Hervé Claustre and Ken Johnson, have just launched the first Biogeochemical-Argo Newsletter announcing the publication of the science and implementation plan of the Biogeochemical-Argo program as well as the release of the program web site (http://biogeochemical-argo.org/). On the web site you will find a wealth of information relevant to our community: current network status and interactive float maps, a list of measured variables and relevant scientific questions these measurements help address, data management and quality control protocols and manuals, and much more. Also be sure to check out the 'Adopt a Float' outreach initiative which could become a fantastic resource for all those involved in teaching.
To continue receiving the Biogeochemical Argo newsletters please subscribe here.
3rd Blue Planet Symposium
Monday, 07 November 2016
We are pleased to inform you that the 3rd Blue Planet Symposium will be held in College Park, MD, USA, May 31-June 2, 2017. The Symposium will serve as a forum for discussion of societal information needs resulting from the important role the oceans play in Earth's life-support system and the challenge of minimizing the impacts of human activities on the oceans while utilizing the resources of the oceans to meet our needs. The symposium will also be a platform for the participating communities to exchange information on their activities and identify potential pilot and prototype projects for Blue Planet to focus on in the coming years.
Registration will open in January 2017.
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…
