Ocean Obs RCN Annual Meeting
The Ocean Obs Research Coordination Network (RCN) will host an OceanObs’19 Conference follow-up meeting on February 16, 2020, in San Diego, CA, immediately preceding the AGU/TOS Ocean Sciences Meeting (https://www2.agu.org/ocean-sciences-meeting/).
The Ocean Obs RCN annual meeting on 16 February 2020 will be dedicated to the synthesis of threads and recommendations emerging from the OceanObs’19 Conference. Of particular interest will be focusing the community on identifying priorities and implementation of initiatives emerging from OceanObs’19. The meeting will advance links between observation networks and operational users to facilitate the delivery of critical information to stakeholders, and to address critical policy issues that require multidisciplinary ocean observing systems. Part of the Ocean Obs RCN meeting will explore strategies to link networks.
Please circulate this ‘Save the Date’ reminder widely. We will follow up with an agenda in early January 2020.
The OceanObs RCN is an NSF-sponsored forum on all aspects of ocean observing. Discussions identify advances and challenges in ocean observing and may identify new technologies and promote their cost-effective development, identify policy priorities, and highlight capacity building requirements for the next decade. This includes discussion of Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030) being organized by the IOC (https://en.unesco.org/ocean-decade), and balancing ocean observations, science, use, and conservation requirements.
