POGO: Taking the Pulse of the Global Ocean
For more than a decade, the Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans, POGO, has served as a forum for leaders of major oceanographic institutions around the world to promote global oceanography, particularly the implementation of international and integrated global ocean observing systems. POGO is an international network of collaborators who foster partnerships that advance efficiency and effectiveness in studying and monitoring the world’s oceans on a global scale. Through its efforts, POGO has promoted observations underpinning ocean and climate science, interpreted scientific results for decision makers, provided training and technology transfer to emerging economies, and built awareness of the many challenges still ahead.

Harmful Algal Bloom RFP published
NOAA/NOS/NCCOS/CSCOR is soliciting proposals for the Ecology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms Program, the Monitoring and Event Response for Harmful Algal Blooms Program and the Prevention, Control and Mitigation of Harmful Algal Blooms Program. Funding is contingent upon the availability of Fiscal Year 2015 Federal appropriations.
SOLAS calls nominations for its Scientific Steering Committee
SOLAS’ aim is to understand the key biogeochemical-physical interactions and feedbacks between the ocean and atmosphere. Achievement of this goal is crucial to understand and quantify the role that ocean-atmosphere interactions play in the regulation of climate and global change. In 2014, SOLAS is celebrating its 10 years anniversary and currently planning its next phase (2015-2015).
Remote Sensing ESA Post-Doc fellowship in ESRIN (for 2 years)
Potential opening for an ESA Post-Doc fellowship in ESRIN (for 2 years) in the field of Remote Sensing with focus on Education & Training. In particular the candidate tasks shall be to:
• Perform research on a topic (to be proposed) relevant with ESA Earth Observation Programme. We encourage proposals related to the scientific and operational exploitation of the forthcoming Sentinel-1,2,3 data, possibly taking advantage of the synergy between different sensors & satellites,
• Support to the development of educational tools based on new technologies and new sensors in the field of Remote Sensing (such as the Sentinel and Earth Explorers data).
SAMS media release - SAMS Director Laurence Mee 1951-2014
It is with a deeply heavy heart that we have to announce the unexpected death of our wonderful director, Professor Laurence Mee FRSC, yesterday afternoon (Wednesday 13 August 2014). Laurence had suffered a severe stroke on Tuesday while on business in Inverness from which he did not recover. He was just 63 and to the last moment exuded an ocean of positive and youthful energy.
Our thoughts and deepest sympathy are with his family and all who were close to him, especially his four children to whom he was a devoted and immensely proud father.
