Barbara J. Ryan, Past GEO Secretariat Director (2012-2018)

“I have such fond memories of my first interaction with the POGO Team, and the energy that they brought to the importance of integrated oceanic observations.  Had it not been for the shared vision and keen collaboration between POGO and NOAA, the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) would not, today, have the Blue Planet Initiative.  Congratulations POGO on your 20th Anniversary — an amazing accomplishment in, and of, itself — but also on the many contributions you have provided to the global ocean community.”
