Ocean and Coastal Nutrient Symposium: submit abstracts by 14th of May
Friday, 05 May 2023
We would like to let you know about the Ocean and Coastal Nutrient Symposium which brings nutrients technicians and scientists together to discuss analytical methods, new technologies, and data processing capabilities. The symposium will take place in Hobart on the 20th of June 2023, coinciding with the end of the International Nutrient Inter-comparison Voyage (INIV). Delivery of the event will be through a hybrid of virtual and in-person events.
This symposium will foster knowledge sharing, further develop laboratory best practices, and will improve the comparability of global nutrient datasets utilised by oceanographers, climate scientists, and biogeochemists. Discussions will cover new and emerging analytical, data processing and technical capabilities, including but not limited to methods and implementation of nanomolar nutrient analysis, robust data pipelines, miniaturisation, and the development of experimental non-bias procedures to increase comparability of nutrient datasets.
8th WMO Workshop "Impact of Various Observing Systems on Numerical Weather & Earth System Prediction, 27–30 May 2024
Friday, 05 May 2023
We would like to let you know that the 8th WMO Workshop on the Impact of Various Observing Systems on Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) and Earth System Prediction (ESP), will take place on 27-30 May 2024. Organized by The World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the workshop will be hosted by the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI), at their headquarters in Norrköping, Sweden.
Workshop sessions will be structured around science questions related to ocean observations and beyond, several of which may be of particular interest to the marine biogeochemistry observing community (e.g. around the role of eularian and lagrangian observations in assessing and forecasting changing biogeochemical cycles). Please see more details on the proposed science questions below.
Call for sediment organic carbon data contributions to the Euro-Carbon database
Thursday, 27 April 2023
We are pleased to inform you about the EURO-CARBON database initiative which aims to provide a baseline of sediment organic carbon levels on a European regional sea scale. If you have relevant carbon data from marine sediments, then please consider contributing your data to the EURO-CARBON database by 27 June 2023 at the latest. The database can potentially be updated periodically in the future to determine trends in organic carbon pools.
A data paper describing the database will be submitted to the journal Limnology and Oceanography Letters (Impact Factor = 8.5). All originators of submitted data and those that provide more than 40 individual carbon observations will be named co-authors on the resulting data article.
POGO-SCOR Fellowship Programme 2023
Monday, 24 April 2023
The Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean (POGO) and Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) have announced that the POGO-SCOR Fellowship programme for 2023 is now open for applications. The scheme is designed to promote training and capacity development, leading towards a global observation scheme for the ocean, and is aimed at scientists, technicians, graduate students (preferably PhD) and post-doctoral fellows involved in oceanographic work at centres in developing countries and countries with economies in transition.
Workshops on surface ocean pCO2 observations, synthesis and data products, 6-8 November, VLIZ, Belgium
Thursday, 20 April 2023
We are pleased to invite you to a series of workshops on surface ocean pCO2 observations, synthesis and data products, which will be held on 6-9 November 2023 at Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ), InnovOcean Campus, Oostende, Belgium.
Surface ocean pCO2/fCO2 (partial pressure/fugacity of CO2) data products and air-sea CO2 fluxes determined from them have become an important input in the quantification of the ocean carbon sink strength in the Global Carbon Budget (GCB) as well as in determining variability and trends of ocean acidification. There are however several aspects of the pCO2 products and the fluxes based on them that are less well known, e.g. their sensitivity to data availability, method of interpolation/gap filling and the overall uncertainty in the air-sea CO2 fluxes.

The format of the workshop will be a hands-on exercise with open practices, inclusive participation, and thoughtful problem exploration. Attendees will generate research ideas utilizing Biogeochemical Argo float data and start working on projects as teams. This will be an active experience designed to familiarize participants with float data analysis techniques, illustrate scientific applications of float data, facilitate collaboration among diverse participants, and develop new tools for data analysis. Applications are now open. Evaluation of applications and travel award requests will begin on 20 May 2023.
First DBCP Mediterranean Training Workshop on Ocean Observations and Data Applications-Part 2
Friday, 07 April 2023
We would like to let you know about the First Data Buoy Coordination Panel (DBCP) Mediterranean Training Workshop on Ocean Observations and Data Applications-Part 2 that will take place on 2-4 May 2023 in Tunis, Tunisia, and online. Guided by Sana Ben Ismail, IOCCP SSG member responsible for strengthening regional implementation, IOCCP has put together a session dedicated to Carbon & Biogeochemistry Observations as part of this hybrid-workshop.
Our session features presentations from and discussions with Maciej Telszewski (IOCCP Director), Marta Álvarez (CSIC, Spain), Sana Ben Ismail (INSTM, Tunisia), Abed El Rahman Hassoun (GEOMAR, Germany) and Houssine Nibani (AGIR, Morocco), covering a broad range of topics related to global and regional observing capacity, best practices, availability and use of data products, as well as data synthesis and coordination activities. We encourage any interested members of the community, especially from around the Mediterranean region, to join the workshop online through this MS Teams link. More information below and on the event page here.
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…
