IOCCP SSG member Véronique Garçon and IOCCP Director Maciej Telszewski are members of the Global Ocean Oxygen Network (GO2NE) Executive Council since its establishment in 2016 as an IOC-UNESCO Working Group. GO2NE is committed to providing a global and multidisciplinary view of deoxygenation, with a focus on understanding its multiple aspects and impacts. The Network offers scientific advice to policy makers to counter this concerning trend and to preserve marine resources in the presence of deoxygenation. Currently, the members of the core working group represent 21 institutions in 11 countries.
A major outcome of GO2NE was an article published in Science in December 2017 on "Declining oxygen in the global ocean and coastal waters." GO2NE Executive Council has recently held their annual meeting on September 2, 2018, in Kiel, Germany, just prior to the Ocean Deoxygenation International Conference.
