Statement from the WMO International Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Symposium
Thursday, 09 March 2023
We would like to update you on the outcomes from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) International Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Symposium that took place at WMO Headquarters in Geneva on 30 January-1 February 2023.
The Symposium was targeted primarily at entities involved in greenhouse gas observations, modelling, data assimilation and related research in all domains of the Earth System. Symposium was held as one of the milestones in a wider attempt to build an internationally coordinated, operational global greenhouse gas monitoring system across all domains. This activity presents an opportunity for our community to further our own efforts towards a sustained, internationally coordinated routine greenhouse gas monitoring infrastructure with a broad group of stakeholders from scientific, operational, and policy-setting entities. 170 participants discussed current status and ways forward across a wide range of topics related to building such a monitoring system. The full Symposium agenda with most interventions available for viewing and download can be accessed from the Symposium website: https://community.wmo.int/en/meetings/wmo-international-greenhouse-gas-monitoring-symposium.
Call for Community Review on "Ocean Acidification Research for Sustainability (OARS)" White Papers
Saturday, 25 February 2023
We would like to let you know that the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development programme "Ocean Acidification Research for Sustainability (OARS)", spearheaded by the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON), invites you to participate in the community review of its white papers. The OARS programme provides a vision for ocean acidification research for the next decade by setting out a roadmap that, when implemented in collaboration with multiple partners, will deliver against seven outcomes by 2030 (see below for details). With this review, we invite the community to provide their thoughts and input to the OARS programme and the implementation plans.

Applications OPEN for biogeochemical sensors training course, 5-18 June 2023, Kristineberg, Sweden
Wednesday, 21 December 2022
IOCCP and the Integrated Carbon Observation System Ocean Thematic Centre (ICOS OTC) are thrilled to open online applications (http://www.ioccp.org/2023-training-course) for an international training course "Instrumenting our ocean for better observation: a training course on a suite of biogeochemical sensors". The course will be held at the Kristineberg Center for Marine Research and Innovation in Kristineberg, Sweden, on June 5-18, 2023. The goal of the course is to further develop proficiency in the use of a suite of biogeochemical sensors and to improve the quality of the data currently generated by autonomous biogeochemical sensors. This intensive, 14-day training course will provide trainees with lectures, hands-on in-situ and laboratory experiences, and informal interactions to improve in-depth knowledge on instrument know-how, troubleshooting, data management, data reduction and quality control.
The course is open to 28 participants, PhD students and early-career researchers with large prospects for utilising the course experience to advance their ongoing or planned research projects and their scientific career in general.
