May 4, 11, 18, 25 and June 1: Global Biogeochemical-Argo Fleet: Knowledge to Action Workshop virtual sessions (Tuesdays) will explore the applications of a global data-stream from the Biogeochemical-Argo array in fisheries, carbon budget verification, and environmental forecasting. The impetus for the workshop is the for better ocean observations to ensure sustainable use by future generations. The audience for the workshop is global, and to accommodate a global audience, the workshop sessions will be repeated twice each day at 7am PDT Panel (1400 UTC) and 4pm PDT (2300 UTC). Many of the presentations will be pre-recorded and available a week before each session starts. Registration is open
