2023 US OCB Activity Proposal Solicitation
Friday, 19 August 2022
The US Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry (OCB) Program is soliciting proposals for OCB activities that will take place or begin during the 2023 calendar year. Due to ongoing pandemic-related uncertainties, in-person activities should include contingency plans in case delays or cancellations are necessary. Proposals for OCB-relevant workshops and activities are sought for:
- Scoping workshops (~50-70 people) that bring together an appropriate body of expertise to foster discussions and build momentum within a specific OCB research area (previous OCB scoping workshops)
- Working groups (~8-12 members) to address targeted science goals/questions and develop products that benefit and engage the broader OCB community (e.g., small “process teams” to improve OCB process understanding and parameterization in earth system models)
- Synthesis activities to bring together existing data sets, model outputs, etc. to support and inform future research efforts
- Intercomparison activities to assess and build consensus on best practices (methodological, modeling, data analysis, etc.) for advancing OCB-relevant research
- Training activities (~30-50 participants plus instructors as needed) to build capacity in different areas of OCB research
Upcoming webinars on deoxygenation by GO2NE (23 Aug) and on ocean acidification by GOA-ON (25 Aug)
Friday, 19 August 2022
We would like to let you know about two webinars which are due to take place next week: on ocean acidification organized by the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON), and on deoxygenation organized by the Global Ocean Oxygen NEtwork (IOC Expert Working Group GO2NE).
The 15th GO2NE webinar will be held on August 23, 23:00 CEST. The webinar will be moderated by Jodie Rummer (James Cook University, Australia) and will include a presentation on "Coral reef hypoxia: Present-day exposure and projections under warming" by Ariel Pezner (Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California San Diego, USA) and on "Unlocking the vulnerability of reef-forming corals to deoxygenation" by David Suggett (University of Technology Sydney, Australia). You can register for the webinar HERE.
The GOA-ON webinar on "Ocean Acidification Monitoring and Scientific Research in the PI-TOA Region" will take place on August 25, 11:00 AM Fiji. The webinar will be moderated by IOCCP Co-Chair Kim Currie with presentations by Dr Antoine De Ramon N’Yeurt, Associate Professor Patila Amosa and Ms Luia Taise. The three speakers will span topics such as establishing a pH time-series on the Suva reef, the effects of ocean acidification on organismal calcification such as corals and bryozoans, and the impacts on the photosynthetic physiology of a green seaweed. These research topics are important in understanding the impact of ocean acidification on coastal ecosystems of the Pacific. You can register for the webinar HERE.
GLODAPv2.2022 data product released!
Wednesday, 17 August 2022
On behalf of the GLODAP Reference Group, and hundreds of seagoing oceanographers that tirelessly have collected data all over the ocean, we are happy to announce the publication of GLODAPv2.2022.
The Global Ocean Data Analysis Project (GLODAP, www.glodap.info) data product provides access to quality controlled surface to bottom ocean biogeochemical data, with an emphasis on seawater inorganic carbon. GLODAPv2.2022 is an update of the previous version. GLODAPv2.2022 includes measurements from more than 1.4 million water samples from the global oceans collected on 1085 cruises. The data for the 13 core variables have undergone extensive quality control, especially systematic evaluation of bias. Data are available at https://www.nodc.noaa.gov/ocads/oceans/GLODAPv2_2022/
Southern Ocean Observing System 2021-2025 Science & Implementation Plan
Thursday, 11 August 2022
The Southern Ocean Observing System (SOOS) announced the official publication of its new Science and Implementation Plan for the time period spanning from 2021-2025. The document articulates the scientific priorities for SOOS through the identification of key gaps in the observational network and by identifying the priorities in addressing these gaps. This Plan covers the five year period 2021-2025, with emphasis on the capabilities required to support data collection and delivery, and the objectives and actions that SOOS will implement. The plan was developed by the SOOS community with extensive input from the broader Southern Ocean community. The plan has undergone international review and was approved by the SOOS's governing bodies, SCAR and SCOR.

Registration open for 2022 SCOR Annual Meeting
Thursday, 11 August 2022
We would like to let you know that registration is open for the 2022 SCOR Annual Meeting which is taking place on 4-6 October 2022 at the Hotel Paradise in Busan, Korea, and online. The purpose of the SCOR Annual Meetings is to make it possible for national SCOR committees and partner organizations to learn of SCOR accomplishments in the past year, to oversee the work of SCOR, and to approve new working groups and the SCOR budget for the coming year. SCOR meetings also provide an opportunity for international marine science projects and organizations to provide updates about their current work and plans for the future.
SCOR annual meetings are open to any participant and there is no registration fee. Follow the meeting website link to access a link for registering, as well as additional information related to the event including logistics and the reports of activities from the SCOR Working Groups and Projects.
SCOR WG154 report "Recommendations for Plankton Measurements on OceanSITES Moorings With Relevance to Other Observing Sites"
Wednesday, 03 August 2022
We are happy to let you know about a new publication from SCOR WG 154 P-OBS (Integration of Plankton-Observing Sensor Systems to Existing Global Sampling Programs; https://scor-int.org/group/154/). In "Recommendations for Plankton Measurements on OceanSITES Moorings With Relevance to Other Observing Sites" the authors provide motivation for augmenting existing time-series sites with biological measurements by presenting relevant science questions, reviewing existing technology, backed up with examples of time-series sites already deploying some of those technologies. Focus is placed on the OceanSITES network for long-term (climate) time series stations in the open ocean and opportunities for coordinating the network's expansion onto more biological measurements. Implementing the recommendations provided in the report would address significant gaps in our capacity to observe several EOVs such as Particulate Matter and Phytoplankton Biomass & Diversity among others, as well as the corresponding ECVs and EBVs.

Global Ocean Observing System Update - July 2022
Wednesday, 03 August 2022
We are happy to share with you that the latest July 2022 GOOS Update has been released. The newsletter is packed with several new exciting announcements our team is delighted to share, as well as a roundup of the highlights of GOOS activity from the recent UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon, including the official side event on marine litter monitoring co-organised by IOCCP. In addition, it contains a forward look to new series of exchanges - Dialogues with Industry - starting in September, that will discuss the barriers and opportunities to more efficient industry participation in the sustained Global Ocean Observing System.
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…
