"MYGEOSS" CALL ANNOUNCEMENT on smart mobile or web-based applications to inform European citizens on the changes affecting their local environment
The European Commission (DG RTD and JRC) is launching an open call for the development of innovative applications (mobile or web-based) using openly available or crowd-generated data in different domains addressing citizens’ needs.
The Data Officer will work closely with the Southern Ocean Observing System International Project Office based at IMAS on the management of data obtained through the Antarctic Gateway Partnership projects as well as other related internationally-collected Antarctic and Southern Ocean data.
The Surface Ocean CO2 Atlas (SOCAT) and the Surface Ocean pCO2 Mapping Intercomparison (SOCOM) will host a joint event at the SOLAS Open Science Conference on 7 September in Kiel, Germany.
The SOCAT part of the meeting will include:
• Release of SOCAT version 3,
• Release of the Automation system,
• Discussion of SOCAT strategy,
• SOCAT science highlights and impact.
The GHER is looking for a post-doc to work in the analysis of SMOS salinity data, in the frame of an ESA Support to Science Element (STSE) project. The aim of the work is to improve the quality of the SMOS salinity data by using data analysis techniques like variational analysis and empirical orthogonal functions. The tentative start date of the contract will be the 1st of April, 2015. The position requires a degree in oceanography, physics, applied mathematics or related field.
