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.

Ambitious science programme will aid fishing industry and monitor effects of climate change on Europe’s shellfish
The supply of shellfish we buy at the supermarket faces an uncertain future as our oceans become warmer and more acidic due to changing climate.
A team of international scientists has launched an ambitious mission to understand how these changes in our oceans will affect several species vital to the European fishing economy and to marine biodiversity.
Currently scientists do not fully understand how shellfish, such as oysters, mussels, scallops and clams produce their shells, or how a change in environment will affect their populations. To address this the European Union is funding a €3.6 million programme called CACHE (Calcium in a Changing Environment).
