NEW OCB-relevant meeting session list
**OCB co-sponsored activity
September 13-15 and 18-20: Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and JETZON are co-hosting a symposium this coming fall: Biodiversity, Ecology, and the Biological Carbon Pump in the Ocean Twilight Zone: A sustainable future in the face of human exploitation and climate change. There will be two main sessions
- Session one will be September 13-15 and will focus on how we determine biomass in the mesopelagic, the architecture of mesopelagic food webs, and understanding diel vertical migration.
- Session two will be September 18-20 and will focus on the biological carbon pump and its magnitude now and in the future.
Register by June 1.
- If you would like to join virtually, to hear the plenary talks, then please register using the links on the right of the conference webpage. For anyone who can’t watch them live, the intention is to record the talks and add them to the JETZON YouTube channel.
September 21: EuroSea Symposium on Ocean Observing and Forecasting, a high-level event bringing together national and international stakeholders from policy, science, and industry, IOC/UNESCO Headquarters in Paris. Registration for the event is currently open and will close on 5 September 2023. For more information on how to register, please visit the website: https://events.geomar.de/event/233/
September 28: 14:00 CEST. First webinar in a series of insightful events exploring how the Horizon Europe OceanICU Project is working towards filling fundamental knowledge gaps about the Ocean Carbon processes, including human activity impacts on the ocean carbon cycle, and how we can develop and provide the right information and tools for industry, policy makers and society to better manage our environment. Please register here: https://ocean-icu.eu/resources/oceanicu-webinar-overview-of-oceanicu/. OceanICU is a five-year project that seeks to gain a new understanding of the biological carbon pump and its processes in order to provide fundamental knowledge and tools to help policy makers, regulators and industry, manage and understand the impact of their actions on Ocean Carbon. As one of the partners in OceanICU consortium, IOCCP will work to develop an internationally-agreed strategy for sustainable, operational monitoring of the surface ocean CO2 (regionally and globally). Building on existing observing programmes, data management structures, and coordination bodies and in partenrship with international and intergovernmental stakeholders we aim to create a global surface ocean CO2 monitoring network capable of responding to the needs of global and regional policy drivers. For more information about the project, please visit the website: https://ocean-icu.eu/

May 27-30: 8th WMO Workshop on the Impact of Various Observing Systems on Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) and Earth System Prediction (ESP) that will be organized by WMO and hosted by the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) in Sweden, at the SMHI main office in Norrköping. This upcoming 8th Workshop will focus on assessing the impacts of various observing systems in all Earth system domains on NWP. However, the scope will be extended to also encompass the impact assessment of the various observing systems, to other Earth system applications. We strongly encourage our community to look through the identified science questions relevant to marine biogeochemistry, especially S1.12-16 related to surface-based observing systems, and S2.9 related to space-based observing systems, and consider submitting an abstract. The abstract submission is open until 15 December 2023. The Workshop will be held in a hybrid format (in-person and remote participation will be enabled) and will be conducted in English. Participation in the workshop is free of charge. There is no workshop fee. For more information, please visit the WMO website.
