The guidelines, a template, and word limits are available at https://scor-int.org/work/groups/proposals/, including a PowerPoint presentation explaining the proposal process.
Changes in the IOCCP Scientific Steering Group and the Project Office
Friday, 09 February 2024
Efficacy, timeliness and impact of the coordination and communication services we provide depends to a large degree on the willingness and availability of experts in our community to lead thematic elements of our portfolio. This is a voluntary service which, more often than not, demands engagement outside of working hours, outside of working days and sometimes outside of the direct expertise of those providing it. These Heroes need to be recognized and properly acknowledged, therefore in this message we would like to inform you about a few recent changes in the composition of the IOCCP Panel and Office. We take this opportunity to thank those rotating off and to welcome those assuming new roles.
Global Greenhouse Gas Watch Implementation Plan Draft - Open for comments, until 31 January 2024
Thursday, 25 January 2024
As you may know, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has been given the mandate by the 19th World Meteorological Congress (Cg-19, May 2023) to develop an Implementation Plan for the Global Greenhouse Gas Watch – G3W, a new Flagship of the WMO. A G3W implementation plan draft v1.0 with a G3W presentation v1.0 to guide the document navigation, are now available for public review.
Declaration on Operationalising the Surface Ocean Carbon Value Chain
Monday, 08 January 2024
We would like to share with you the Oostende Declaration in which the 100+ ocean experts and stakeholders call for concerted international and intergovernmental efforts to create a robust, resilient and sustainable surface ocean carbon observing system.

2024 SCOR Visiting Scholars Program - Call for Applications
Monday, 13 November 2023
We are pleased to inform you about the call for applications for the 2024 SCOR Visiting Scholars Program, which is open to any scientists who have time available to spend teaching and mentoring in a developing country for two weeks or more. The overarching goal of this program is to inspire, motivate, and inform students and faculty at developing institutions while also building long-term and sustainable collaborations and capacity. These scholarships are not intended to directly support research, although collaborative research may be an outcome of a visit. Applications from all regions of the world are welcome and the visit can happen at any time between February 2024 and December 2024.
Biogenic Data Products to Advance Ocean Carbon Sequestration Modelling in the Arctic – Community Online Workshop
Wednesday, 08 November 2023
Motivated by the calls for more integrated ocean carbon research, two EU-funded projects ECOTIP and EU4OceanObs have been supporting since early 2023 a multidisciplinary group of researchers in convening a new working group activity around ocean carbon sequestration data synthesis and modelling in the Arctic. Building on the results of an open community survey which engaged over sixty experts in Arctic carbon observations and modelling, both senior and early-career researchers from across Europe, North America and Asia, on 18-19 October 2023 the group organized an online workshop which gathered over 30 attendees tasked with identifying and designing biogenic data products to advance ocean carbon sequestration modelling in the Arctic. The event was also supported by the IOCCP, as part of the efforts to strengthen the integration across the biogeochemical modelling and observing interface.
GLODAPv2.2023 data product released!
Monday, 06 November 2023
On behalf of the GLODAP Reference Group, and hundreds of seagoing oceanographers who tirelessly have collected data all over the ocean, we are happy to announce the publication of GLODAPv2.2023.
The Global Ocean Data Analysis Project (GLODAP) data product provides access to quality controlled surface to bottom ocean biogeochemical data, with an emphasis on seawater inorganic carbon. GLODAPv2.2023 is an update of the previous version, with 23 additional cruises and includes measurements from more than 1.4 million water samples from the global oceans collected on 1108 cruises. The data for the 13 core variables have undergone extensive quality control, especially systematic evaluation of bias. The data are available in two formats: (i) as submitted by the data originator but updated to WOCE exchange format and (ii) as a merged data product with adjustments applied to minimize bias.
More details about GLODAP background as well as the v2.2023 release poster can be found here.
GO2NE Webinar on Ocean Deoxygenation, 20 November 2023
Monday, 30 October 2023
We are pleased to inform you about the upcoming Webinar on Ocean Deoxygenation organized by the Global Ocean Oxygen Network (IOC Expert Working Group GO2NE). The 24th webinar of the series will take place on 20 November 2023, at 17:00 CET. The webinar will feature presentations by two early-career scientists, 20 minutes each, followed by 10 minutes moderated discussion sessions. Please register for the webinar here.
Ship-based Ocean Time Series Data Workshop, 9-12 January 2024 (BIOS, Bermuda) – Applications are open until 24 October 2023!
Friday, 20 October 2023
We would like to kindly remind you that the applications for the FAIR Data Practices for Ship-based Ocean Time Series Workshop are open until 24 October 2023. The workshop will be held on 9-12 January 2024 at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) and will bring together globally distributed ship-based ocean time series representatives who are interested in and committed to FAIR data practices with data managers and experts in semantic web technologies with the following objectives:
- Share and vet newly drafted biogeochemical and biological use cases for adoption by the broader METS community,
- Work with participating time series representatives to implement these use cases for their time series programs,
- Co-develop best practices for responsible use of ocean time series datasets (as a contribution to the Ocean Best Practices System repository),
- Share new findings and update recommendations on sampling and analytical protocols from the 2012 Bermuda Time Series Methods Workshop,
- Explore mechanisms (and identify champions!) for engaging broader stakeholders (managers, educators, etc.) in the use of ocean time series data sets,
- Start planning (and identify champions!) for an Ocean HackWeek for ocean time series data.
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…
