We would like to let you know that the next GOA-ON Webinar by the Communities of Ocean Action on Ocean Acidification will take place on Monday, 17 May 2021, 12:00 PM – 13:00 PM UTC. The two focal points for the Communities of Ocean Action on Ocean Acidification, Bronte Tilbrook (CISRO) and Peter Swarzenski (IAEA), will provide updates about progress made on the Voluntary Commitments (VC) and other developments. They will be joined by Roshan Ramessur (OA Africa Network) and Kirsten Isensee (IOC-UNESCO) who will share lessons learned from their VCs during the past year. The Communities of Ocean Action were created in 2017 at the Lisbon Ocean Conference to serve as a catalyst for change, providing an opportunity to network and collaborate on commitments which address Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14.

We would like to let you know that on Thursday, 20 May 2021, 11:00-12:00 UTC, the European Marine Board (EMB) will host a webinar on Big Data and the value chain of ocean CO2 measurements. The webinar will build on the science presented in EMB's 6th Future Science Brief on Big Data in Marine Science, and will be presented by one of the co-authors of this publication, Dr. Dorothee Bakker (short bio).
Integrated Ocean Carbon Research: A Summary of Ocean Carbon Knowledge and a Vision for Coordinated Ocean Carbon Research and Observations for the Next Decade - report published by IOC-UNESCO
Wednesday, 28 April 2021
We are excited to announce that IOC-UNESCO has just published the "Integrated Ocean Carbon Research: A Summary of Ocean Carbon Knowledge and a Vision for Coordinated Ocean Carbon Research and Observations for the Next Decade", a report which sets out to accomplish the vital task of indicating the current gaps and future directions for the integrated ocean carbon cycle research.
IOCCP was one of the five international research and coordination programmes on ocean-climate interaction, which have been working together since 2018 in the IOC Working Group on Integrated Ocean Carbon Research (IOC-R). The other organizations are: the Integrated Marine Biosphere Research Project (IMBeR), the Surface Ocean Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS), the Climate and Ocean Variability, Predictability and Change (CLIVAR) project and the Global Carbon Project (GCP).
The report presents a synthesis of the state of knowledge about the oceans’ role in the carbon cycle and points to the way ahead. Its objective is to provide decision-makers with the knowledge needed to develop climate change mitigation and adaptation policies for the coming decade. It also emphasizes the importance of scientific knowledge to the taking of informed decisions within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in order to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement and build more resilient societies. Through continued collaboration amongst IOC-R WG co-conveners, we hope to develop an innovative joint programme of medium- and long-term integrated ocean carbon research to fill the gaps in this field.

Upcoming IOCCP Events
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…
