Global Biogeochemical-Argo Workshop
4 May 2021 - 1 Jun 2021
An online workshop “Global Biochemical-Argo Fleet, Knowledge to Action”, building on the priorities of the G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative (G7 FSOI) will take place on 4, 11, 18, 25 May and on 1 June. The workshop will highlight the benefits of the global array to multiple users, identify remaining observing system and data delivery gaps, and motivate new commitments and partnerships. The workshop is organised by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), and the State University of New Jersey (RUTGERS), with international coordination assistance from the G7 FSOI Coordination Centre, and with financial support from NASA, NOAA, and NSF.
The workshop will present the initial international commitments to the Biogeochemistry-Argo system and discuss how to ensure that the combined investment meets the priorities of the G7 and international funders and stakeholders. The workshop will prioritise next steps with partners to ensure full implementation of the array and the international collaboration required to sustain the global biogeochemal Argo fleet into the future.

About the FSOI Coordination Centre
The EU4OceanObs action coordinator of the G7 FSOI works with the other G7 FSOI coordinators to form a distributed Coordination Centre that implements the initiative’s activities under the guidance of the G7 FSOI National Focal Points and the Working Group. The workshop is part of the G7 FSOI scoping activity to support the Global Biogeochemical-Argo Fleet. For more information on G7 FSOI activities, click here.
