Draft plan for a global, Biogeochemical-Argo array
Monday, 04 July 2016
We would like to let you know that a draft document ‘The Rationale, Design and Implementation Plan for Biogeochemical-Argo’ is now available for community consultation. Biogeochemical-Argo is the extension of the Argo array of profiling floats to include floats that are equipped with biogeochemical sensors for pH, oxygen, nitrate, chlorophyll, suspended particles, and downwelling irradiance. The draft plan stems from the discussions held at a workshop on 11-13 January 2016, at the Laboratoire d’Oceanographie de Villefranche, France.
10th International Carbon Dioxide Conference (ICDC10), 21-25 August 2017, Interlaken, Switzerland
Monday, 20 June 2016
We would like to let you know that the 10th International Carbon Dioxide Conference (ICDC10) will be held on 21-25 August 2017 in Interlaken, Switzerland. The conference will be organized around themes and "Grand Challenges" that integrate across different reservoirs, ecosystems and disciplines. The overarching goal is to elucidate how human activities, including fossil fuel emissions and land use, influence the coupled carbon-climate system. IOCCP is one of the supporting organizations for this important meeting.
Abstract submission and registration will open in September 2016.
Pan Ocean Remote Sensing Conference (PORSEC) 2016, 3-11 November 2016, Fortaleza, Brazil
Wednesday, 08 June 2016
We would like to inform you that the 2016 Pan Ocean Remote Sensing Conference (PORSEC) will be held in Fortaleza, Brazil, on 3-11 November 2016. PORSEC provides an opportunity for the scientists working on various aspects of ocean and atmosphere using remote sensing technology to come together and discuss their results and innovations. This year's Conference theme is: Enabling Earth Observations in Support of Global, Coastal, Ocean and Climate Change Research and Monitoring. The Conference will take place on 8-11 November, preceded with a Capacity Building Student Tutorial on 3-7 November.
Abstracts may be submitted until June 26th, 2016.

7th EGO Conference on Autonomous Ocean Gliders & their Applications, 26-29 September 2016, Southampton, UK
Tuesday, 24 May 2016
The 7th EGO (Everyone's Gliding Observatory) conference will be held from 26th to 29th September, 2016, at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) in Southampton, the United Kingdom. The use of gliders is now widespread but there remains a need for a forum in which scientists, engineers, students and industry can exchange knowledge and experiences on the development of glider technology and on the application of gliders in oceanographic research and in ocean observing systems.
The call for abstracts closes on 27th June 2016, 23:00 UTC.
G7 ministers support the enhancement of multidisciplinary sustained global ocean observing system
Friday, 20 May 2016
The Science and Technology Ministers of the G7 (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, UK, US) and the EU met in Tsukuba City, Japan on May 15-17 to discuss science, technology and innovation aspects across global challenges such as health, energy, agriculture and the environment. In their communiqué, the G7 ministers support the enhancement of multidisciplinary sustained global ocean observing system, promote open data sharing infrastructure and call for an enhanced system of ocean assessments.
Ocean ventilation and deoxygenation in a warming world - discussion meeting, 12-13 September 2016, The Royal Society, London, UK
Friday, 20 May 2016
We would like to let you know that a scientific discussion meeting on "Ocean ventilation and deoxygenation in a warming world" will take place at the Royal Society of London, UK on 12-13 September 2016. This meeting will discuss the less obvious but important indirect impacts of climate change on the oceans. Increased stratification will affect ocean circulation and ventilation, and lead to reduced upwelling and deep water formation. This will reduce oxygenation through (still uncertain) interactions with biological production and remineralisation, with potential socio-economic consequences on fisheries and ecosystems.
The event is free but advance registration is essential (max capacity: 280).
Atlantic Ocean Climate Scholars Programme 2016, 12-20 September 2016, Galway, Ireland
Wednesday, 18 May 2016
The Atlantic Ocean Climate Scholars Programme is an intensive, accredited, fully funded workshop examining how climate and oceans interact, with particular examples from the Atlantic Ocean and higher latitudes. It will be held in Galway, Ireland from 12th to 20th September 2016 and is open to postgraduate students of marine, atmosphere and climate-related sciences. A total of 24 places for both European and International applicants are available.
Application deadline: Friday 3 June 2016 at 18:00 UTC. Successful applicants will be notified by 27th June 2016.
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…
