GEOTRACES Training workshop on metal speciation and isotopes, 12-17 May 2018, Xiamen, China

A training workshop on metal speciation and isotopes in the ocean for GEOTRACES and beyond will be organized by State Key Laboratory of Marine Environmental Science (MEL) on May 12-17, 2018 in Xiamen, China. The purpose of this workshop is to train graduate students and professionals who are interested in or will study trace metal and isotope biogeochemistry. It is hoped that the workshop will also serve to enhance capacity of GEOTRACES-related studies. The training will include in class lectures and hands-on experiments in the laboratory equipped with a variety of measurement tools.

Call for Nominations to the SOOS Scientific Steering Committee

The Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) and the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) invite nominations of qualified individuals to serve on the Scientific Steering Committee of the Southern Ocean Observing System (SOOS).

 

Oceans of Impact

The ocean has been experiencing substantial changes in marine physics, chemistry and biology including ocean acidification, rising seawater temperature, ocean deoxygenation and sea level rise. These four, often interacting factors, are expected to increase over the coming decades depending on the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. It is imperative that international decision-makers and stakeholders understand the enormous role the ocean plays in sustaining life on Earth, and the consequences of a high CO2 world for the ocean and society.
