SOCAT version 2022 main synthesis and gridded products contain quality-controlled in situ surface ocean fCO2 (fugacity of CO2) observations. Thanks to measurements made on ships, moorings, autonomous and drifting surface platforms, the observations cover the global ocean and coastal seas from 1957 to 2021.
On 25 November, the Surface Ocean CO2 Monitoring Network planning team will hold a joint meeting with the International Ocean Carbon Coordination Project (IOCCP) scientific steering group. The meeting will …
The Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) presented its ocean-climate priorities at the 26th session of the UNFCCC Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland. Co-chair Anya Waite (Ocean Frontiers Institute) presented GOOS priorities in the science pavilion as part of the GCOS Status Report and the Earth Information Day.
This annual report provides a key insight into the status of the Global Ocean Observing System, assessing observing networks’ progress, focusing on what is needed to meet the challenges and demands for ocean information, and encouraging collaborations and new partners to join the ocean observing community.
