Public review of GCOS requirements for Essential Climate Variables due by end of 2017
Monday, 13 November 2017
The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) is launching an open review of the current requirements for Essential Climate Variables (ECV) that are the basis for the global systematic observation of the climate system. GCOS would like to invite as wide a possible range of reviewers to participate. This is the first step in a revision and update of the requirements planned for 2021/2. Revisions to the existing ECV and ECV products or proposals for new ECV or ECV products can be made and support for the existing requirements is also encouraged. These requirements are intended to be user requirements: what is needed by users. We encourage the marine biogeochemistry community to review these user requirements, in particular the ones set for Ocean Biogeochemistry ECVs: Inorganic Carbon, Nitrous Oxide, Nutrients, Ocean Colour, Oxygen and Transient Tracers - all of which have their corresponding Essential Ocean Variables (EOVs) as defined by GOOS.
Comments should be submitted by end of 2017 using the on-line form at:
GOOS webinar on SOCAT (15 November) and US CLIVAR webinar on Ocean Carbon Hot Spots (14 November)
Friday, 10 November 2017
We would like to let you know about two very interesting webinars coming up next week. The Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) webinar on the Surface Ocean CO₂ Atlas (SOCAT) will be presented by Dorothee Bakker (University of East Anglia; UEA) and Kim Currie (National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research; NIWA), and is scheduled for November 15, 18:00 GMT/UTC. The joint US CLIVAR and the US Ocean Carbon Biogeochemistry Program webinar on Ocean Carbon Hotspots, following up on a recent workshop on that topic, is scheduled for November 14, 18:00 GMT/UTC. It features Stu Bishop (North Carolina State University), Keith Rodgers (Princeton University), Alison Gray (University of Washington) and Dongxiao Zhang (NOAA PMEL).
50th International Liege Colloquium on Ocean Dynamics, 28 May - 1 June 2018, Liège, Belgium
Tuesday, 07 November 2017
We would like to let you know that in 2018 there will be the 50th edition of the International Liege Colloquium of Ocean Dynamics, a perfect reason to celebrate and review the advances made in studying the oceans during the last several decades. In particular, this edition will be dedicated to long-term studies in oceanography. Our knowledge about the ocean has changed dramatically over these past 50 years, as is the availability and quality of data and tools to study the ocean. The Colloquium will be held from 28 May to 1 June 2018 at the University of Liège in Liège, Belgium. We invite abstracts in the study of the ocean using long-term datasets, based on in situ data, remote sensing data, model simulations and reanalyses. Works that evidence the importance of maintaining in time the in situ and remote sensing datasets, and review studies that provide a perspective of the advancement of science during the last decades using these long-term datasets are also welcome.
Deadline for abstract submissions: 19 January 2018

7th International SOLAS Summer School - apply by November 15
Monday, 09 October 2017
Applications are now welcome for the 7th International Surface Ocean - Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS) Summer School which will take place on 23rd July - 4th August 2018 in Cargèse, Corsica, France. The SOLAS Summer School brings together over 70 students and 15 world-leading international scientists, in a variety of fields, for a combination of lectures and practical workshops. It aims to teach the skills and knowledge of the many disciplines needed to understand the nature of ocean-atmosphere interactions and how to link ocean-atmosphere interactions with climate and people. It allows doctoral students and early-career researchers to see how their work fits into the broad canvas of SOLAS, and global change research more generally.
Deadline for applications: 15 November 2017
