“ACO 2016 – A Connected Ocean” Science Conference, 11-13 October 2016, Brest, France
Tuesday, 27 September 2016
The “ACO 2016 - A Connected Ocean” Science Conference will be held on 11-13 October 2016 in Brest, France. The challenge for future ocean knowledge and data integration sets the stage for this conference. This conference, co-organized with EuroGOOS, is built around five thematic sessions and a workshop through which participants will explore new approaches, new technologies and new challenges for knowledge of ocean processes.
You may submit your abstracts for an oral or poster contribution until end of September 2016.
“OceAn pH Research Integration and Collaboration in Africa - ApHRICA” project kick-off
Tuesday, 16 August 2016
A pilot project aiming to install and operate ocean sensors on platforms operated by colleagues in Mauritius, Mozambique, the Seychelles and South Africa to study ocean acidification in East Africa was officially launched during the kick-off workshop at the end of July. The project is called "OceAn pH Research Integration and Collaboration in Africa – ApHRICA". The launch of ApHRICA will not only enhance local ocean monitoring efforts in East Africa but will also facilitate connections to global efforts such as the Global Ocean Acidification Network (GOA-ON).

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.
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…
