Ocean Carbon from Space workshop
14 Feb 2022 - 18 Feb 2022
2nd Workshop in the CLEO (Colour and Light in the ocean from Earth Observation) Series
The European Space Agency (ESA), with Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) and support from NASA, is organising an Ocean Carbon From Space Workshop, to be held virtually from 14 to 18 February 2022.
The main objective of the workshop is to bring together remote sensing scientists, field scientists and modellers around the common topic of ocean carbon, its pools and fluxes, its variability in space and time and the understanding of its processes and interactions with the earth system. The aim is to articulate a collective view of the current status, identify gaps in knowledge and formulate the scientific roadmap for the next decade, with an emphasis on evaluating where Earth Observations (EO) may contribute.

G7 FSOI support for ocean carbon monitoring
As part of the G7 Future of the Seas & Oceans (FSOI) Coordination Centre’s scientific and technical support to Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS), the Coordination Centre will work closely with the the International Ocean Carbon Coordination Project (IOCCP) to develop an internationally agreed strategy for Surface Ocean CO2 monitoring, a priority of the G7 FSOI. The EU coordinator of the G7 FSOI Coordination Centre (EU4OceanObs) leads the G7 FSOI support to the IOCCP on this activity. For more information, click here.
