NEW OCB-relevent meeting session list
April 3: Communicating with Journalists* in Atlanta, GA, USA all day (in advance of the Ocean Visions Summit). To provide ocean CDR scientists with an opportunity to turn their research into compelling messages and to prepare for media and policy communications and engagements, COMPASS will be hosting two science communication training workshops in 2023. The workshops are free for participants and funded by ClimateWorks Foundation. This in-person, full-day workshop will focus on strategically tailoring your messages for media audiences. You’ll have the opportunity to work with professional journalists, who will provide a window into their media ecosystems. COMPASS trainers and journalists will guide you through strategies to hone your media interview skills, refine your messages for the media, and build relationships with journalists.

May 8-12: NASA Earth Science’s Carbon Cycle & Ecosystem (CC&E) focus area will be hosting a Joint Science Workshop. CC&E is an umbrella under which four program elements, including OBB, provide knowledge of the interactions of global biogeochemical cycles and terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems with global environmental change and the implications for Earth’s climate, productivity, and natural resources. This event will bring together community members from each of these four programs and their Applied Sciences counterparts. Plenary talks will address five themes: Future Research Directions, Human Influence on Global Ecosystems, Climate Change Impacts, Research to Applications, and Disturbance, Resilience, Mitigation, & Adaptation. This workshop is planned to be held in person in the College Park, Maryland.
May 8-12: The call for abstracts for the 54th International Liège Colloquium (Liège, Belgium)"Machine learning and data analysis in oceanography" is now open! The colloquium will be in hybrid mode, but we would really like to see you here in person! Link to terms of reference
May 9-11: Registration is now open for the 2023 DOOS Virtual Annual Meeting - "Exploring collective solutions to global deep-sea challenges.” This years meeting will follow roughly the same schedule as last year with full group sessions Days 1 & 3 (May 9 & 11) from 1100-1500 ET and Day 2 (May 10) split into eight individual, 2-hour breakout sessions spanning from 0900-1700 ET. Please fill out this form to register - https://forms.gle/cqGyBwHxrKmswenp7
During last year's meeting, the community came together to identify focused initiatives to address global challenges in the deep sea. In this year's meeting, we will be focusing on creating collective solutions to scientific and societal needs across communities and disciplines by increasing our global capacity to observe the deep sea. To that end we will kick things off with a plenary from our DOERs and have a special presentation on the Deep Sea Capacity Assessment from the Ocean Discovery League. We are also excited to have several groups co-leading Day 2 breakouts, including DOSI, COBRA, and the Ocean Discovery League. Please join us and contribute your ideas and priorities as we work together to strategically align the deep ocean observing community toward collective solution-based science.
