The International Ocean Deoxygenation Conference (https://conference.sfb754.de/event/1) was held from 3-7 September 2018 in Kiel, Germany. The conference was organised by the Collaborative Research Center (SFB 754) which addresses the threat of ocean deoxygenation, its possible impact on tropical oxygen minimum zones and implications for the global climate-biogeochemistry system. The conference brought together the global scientific community working on Ocean Deoxygenation and aimed to identify drivers and consequences of ocean deoxygenation in the past, present and future. IOCCP was represented by Véronique Garçon and Maciej Telszewski.
One outcome of the conference is the 'Kiel Declaration', in which the scientists call for more marine and climate protection and more international awareness of oxygen depletion. The declaration can be signed HERE.
