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).

Pre-Announcement: Nutrient Certified Reference Materials with the SCOR-JAMSTEC logo will be available in early boreal summer 2016
Friday, 29 April 2016
SCOR Working Group 147 “Towards comparability of global oceanic nutrient data (COMPONUT)“ announced that the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) will start to provide Nutrient Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) with the new SCOR-JAMSTEC logo, with a new cost structure making them more accessible for the global science and research community. These will be available for sale in early boreal summer 2016, based on the framework objectives of SCOR WG#147. For discussion of the scientific issues of these CRMs, please contact one of the SCOR WG#147 Co-chairs.

Join “Pier-2-Peer” – the new Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) mentorship initiative
Wednesday, 27 April 2016
The Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) is launching “Pier-2-Peer”, the new GOA-ON mentorship program, to match senior scientists with ocean acidification expertise with new GOA-ON members to support the development of OA monitoring (chemical to biological) in emerging regions. In the future, GOA-ON leadership hopes to secure financial support for travel and other training activities for mentors and mentees participating in GOA-ON’s Pier-2-Peer mentoring program.
Review of SCOR Working Group Proposals
Monday, 25 April 2016
Eleven working group proposals that have been submitted to the SCOR Secretariat for consideration at the 2016 SCOR General Meeting are available on the SCOR Web site. The Executive Committee will be very grateful for comments from SCOR National Committees, individuals, and interested organizations to assist in the review of these proposals. This is, in fact, one of the most important ways in which SCOR’s National Committees and cooperating organizations can provide input to SCOR on scientific priorities. SCOR WG proposal reviews are due to Ed Urban, Executive Director of SCOR, by 1 August 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…
