Global synthesis product of seafloor surficial carbonate
Monday, 07 March 2016
We would like to inform you about a new global synthesis product of seafloor surficial carbonate, which follows early work by Archer (1996). To interface with climate and circulation models, ocean substrates data have been gridded from dbSEABED (Information Integration System for Marine Substrates) at the global scale, at a 1/10° resolution. The new mapping suggests lower carbonate contents overall than mapped in earlier works. This may affect modeled budgets for earth-system carbon dioxide and outcomes for ocean acidification.
An Internally Consistent Dataset of δ13C-DIC Data in the North Atlantic Ocean
Thursday, 03 March 2016
We would like to let you know that An Internally Consistent Dataset of δ13C-DIC Data in the North Atlantic Ocean (NAC13v1) is now available for download from CDIAC. The dataset has undergone strict quality control. It includes all in all 6068 samples, originating from oceanographic research cruises that took place between 1981 and 2012. The dataset by Becker et al. is currently under review for publishing in Earth System Science Data (ESSD).

The 2016 POGO-SCOR Visiting Fellowships programme is now open for applications
Tuesday, 09 February 2016
The Partnership for Observations of the Global Oceans (POGO) and the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) are jointly funding a Visiting Fellowships programme designed to promote training and capacity building leading towards a global observation scheme for the oceans. The Programme has been a success for over fifteen years, with over 160 fellowships awarded since 2001. The fellowship programme is open to 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.
The deadline for the applications for this year is 15th April 2016.

NATO commits its vessel to climate monitoring program
Thursday, 28 January 2016
A multinational observation network PIRATA (Prediction and Research Moored Array in the Tropical Atlantic) has just gained support from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Research Vessel (NRV) Alliance to accomplish studies, monitoring and maintenance requirements of this essential climate monitoring program. A five-year framework agreement between NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), signed in December 2015, marks a breakthrough in transatlantic cooperation while fostering sharing of assets and capabilities in oceanic and atmospheric monitoring in the North Atlantic.
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…
