Observing and Modelling the Meridional Overturning Circulation in the South Atlantic (SAMOC)

Overview The meridional overturning circulation (MOC) in the Atlantic is a key element of the time-variable coupled climate system and may have played a significant role in the subsurface sequestration of heat during the recent global warming hiatus. New in the observing systems monitoring this event is the SAMOC (South Atlantic MOC) Basin Wide Array (SAMBA).  Extending from South America …

International Quiet Ocean Experiment (IQOE): Implement Science Recommendations

Overview The issue of how noise affects marine mammals in all oceans is a global issue affecting governments, industries, and conservation interests. There have been significant recent developments in technology, research, and increasingly broad spatial and temporal scales over which we can monitor ocean animals and ocean sound using acoustic sensors. A diversity of approaches …

Observing and Understanding the Ocean below Antarctic Sea Ice and Ice Shelves (OASIIS)

Overview While changes in the Southern Ocean have widespread consequences for the planet, the paucity of observations in this part of the ocean hinders research. The OASIIS working group aims to develop a detailed implementation plan for an under-ice observing system. This truly global consortium led by Richard Coleman, the Institute for Marine and Antarctic …

Planning the implementation of a global long-term observing and data sharing strategy for macroalgal communities

Overview Macroalgal forests (dominated by kelp and fucoid brown algae) are iconic on rocky reefs around the world’s temperate coasts. These highly productive and diverse ecosystems provide many important functions and services including provision of nursery areas, human food resources, and protection from coastal erosion. Macroalgal forests are vulnerable to global threats such as ocean …

Earth Observation for Ecology and Epidemiology of Water-associated Diseases

Overview Several million cases of water-associated disease are reported globally each year from water-borne or vector-borne pathogens. A large number of cases may be avoided through improved access to clean water and sanitation, and more cases could be prevented by improving prediction of disease outbreaks and health risks, using an integrated approach involving in-situ observations, …

POGO Industrial Liaison Council (PILC)

Overview PILC aims to form a bridge between academic and government POGO member institutions and a range of industry sectors, through which contacts can be made, ideas discussed and joint projects established (e.g. for technological developments, environmental monitoring, risk/safety management, adherence to policy, data sharing, etc). Born out of the Bussiness Advisory Group, one of the parallel …
