International Workshop: FAIR Data Practices for Ship-based Ocean Time Series, 9-12 January 2024 (BIOS, Bermuda)
Wednesday, 07 June 2023
We are pleased to let you know about the workshop FAIR Data Practices for Ship-based Ocean Time Series that will be held on 9-12 January 2024 at BIOS in Bermuda and will bring together globally distributed ship-based ocean time series representatives who are interested 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
Registration will open in Fall 2023. For more information please read the original announcement: https://www2.whoi.edu/site/mets-rcn/projects/fair-ship-based-ocean-time-series-international-workshop/
Survey on ocean oxygen measurements and quality controls
Monday, 05 June 2023
On behalf of the Global Ocean Oxygen Database and Atlas Steering Committee we would like to ask you to complete a short survey (10 questions, less than 10 minutes) to help identify who, where and how ocean oxygen is measured, what type of quality checks and flags are applied, etc. Ocean oxygen data are a critical part to understand our ocean today and in the future. However, currently there is no common entry point to obtain ocean oxygen data of known quality from the open and coastal ocean, measured from Eulerian and Lagrangian platforms. Within the Ocean Decade Programme Global Ocean Oxygen Decade (GOOD) an effort called Global Ocean Oxygen Database and ATlas (GO2DAT) is trying to change this.

The SCOR Executive Committee will be very grateful for comments from SCOR National Committees, individuals, and interested organizations to assist in the review of these proposals.
Towards a Marine Biogeochemical Latin American Network (SOLAS Latin American Workshop), 26 May 2023 at 14:00-17:50 UTC-4
Tuesday, 23 May 2023
We would like to let you know that SOLAS will hold an online Spanish workshop on Marine Biogeochemistry Research on Latin American Coastal Zones on 26 May 2023 at 14:00-17:50 UTC-4. The workshop aims to learn about current research on coastal marine biogeochemistry in Latin America, focusing on, but not restricted to, the key biogeochemical interactions and feedback between the ocean and the atmosphere of upwelling zones.

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.
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…
