POGO: Taking the Pulse of the Global Ocean

POGO: Taking the Pulse of the Global Ocean

Since 1999, the Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean, 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.

How dangerous is the Adriatic Sea?

Geophysicists from Kiel examine plate bounderies between Italy and the Balkans. Onboard the RV METEOR Geophysicists from Kiel together with partners from Germany, Albania, Croatia, Italy and Montenegro are conducting the first fundamental examination of the lithosphere below the southern Adriatic Sea. The aim of the expedition is to improve the risk assessment of natural hazards in the region. Download attachment for full press release.

Why did Gondwana break up?

In January 2012, marine geophysicists from Kiel started an expedition to the most remote island in the world. Although the island Tristan da Cunha plays a key role in the general understanding of plate tectonics, how it came into existence is still controversial. With the research vessel MARIA S. MERIAN marine scientists from Kiel (Germany) want to gain new data from the region to answer some of the open questions. See press release attached.

CSIRO: Looking for climate clues in the Southern Ocean

Scientists have left on a research voyage to the Southern Ocean to investigate how the Southern Ocean is changing and to discover what impact those changes will have on climate, sea level, and marine life.
