Ocean Obs 19

Date added: Tuesday 19th December 2017

Ocean Obs '19


Honolulu, 16-20 September 2019

The main goal of the conference will be to further develop effective strategies for a sustained, multidisciplinary and integrated ocean observing system, and to better connect user communities and observers. End user communities include operational users, national and local authorities as well as researchers, from the public and private sectors. Engagement with international user communities can take diverse forms, including closer interaction to better target their needs for ocean observing networks and derived products while better informing management decisions. OceanObs’19 will continue the tradition of building the vision of ocean users and observers.

Abstract submission open

The organizers of OceanObs’19 are soliciting abstracts of Community White Papers describing aspirations for the coming decade from all interested groups. The Community White Papers should promote international collaboration and large-scale sustained ocean observing efforts, and address one or ideally more of the seven (anticipated) themes (Discovery, Ecosystem Health & Biodiversity, Climate Variability & Change, Water, Food, & Energy Security, Pollution & Human Health, Hazards & Maritime Safety, and Blue Economy) and two crosscutting themes on data information system and ocean observing governance topics.
