"The IOC-Unesco Global Ocean Oxygen Network (GO2NE)
Since about 1960, ocean deoxygenation is occurring in the coastal and global ocean and is expected to worsen in a warming world with consequences on living organisms and on regional and global budgets of essential elements. Better understanding of the deoxygenation process can be achieved by access to accurate observations and to furthering the reliability and coupling capabilities of physical, biogeochemical, plankton and benthic foodweb, and upper trophic level models. Rapid advancement is being made in each of the modeling types, as well as in how best to couple them, in order to generate "climate to fish" models (e.g. Rose et al. 2010) that include oxygen effects.  [...]"

Ocean Deoxygenation Conference Deadline

This is a quick reminder that the abstract submission deadline for the Ocean Deoxygenation Conference ends tomorrow Saturday, 14th April 2018 at 23.59h.

Job offer in marine environment forecasting

"2-year post doc position is available at the Modelling for Aquatic Systems research group (MAST) of the University of Liège (ULiege) (Belgium). MAST is devoted to the development of ocean numerical models for understanding, forecasting and managing the ocean. The position is offered in the frame of the European Union Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS). The CMEMS provides state-of the-art analyses and forecasts of the ocean state each day combining information from observations (both satellite and in-situ) and numerical ocean models. This information is freely available to a wide community of users offering an unprecedented capability to observe, understand and anticipate marine environment events. The MAST is part of the Black Sea marine forecasting centre (BS-MFC) as a production unit for the biogeochemistry of the Black Sea. [...]"

Requirements for application:

  • PhD in ocean numerical modelling or equivalent.
  • Talent for computational scientific work.
  • Experience with biogeochemical modelling and supercomputers will be an asset.
  • Good knowledge in English is necessary.

[GERMAN] Sauerstoff im Ozean – Weniger, noch weniger, weg

Meeresworkshop für Jugendliche

9.–13. April 2018, GEOMAR Kiel

Neue Forschungsergebnisse des Sonderforschungsbereichs 754 der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft weisen darauf hin, dass die Sauerstoffgehalte in einigen Regionen des Pazifischen und Atlantischen Ozeans in mittleren Tiefen allmählich abnehmen. Die Forschenden aus den Bereichen der Meeresbiologie, Chemie, Physik und Geologie vermuten hierbei eine Wechselwirkung zwischen der Klimaänderung und der Ausbreitung dieser sauerstoffarmen Zonen im Meer.

Das GEOMAR Helmholtz-Zentrum für Ozeanforschung Kiel veranstaltet zu diesem Thema einen

1-wöchigen Osterworkshop für Jugendliche im Alter von 14-17 Jahren.

Der Kurs für 12 Teilnehmer findet am GEOMAR in der zweiten Woche der Schleswig-Holsteinischen Osterferien statt, ganztägig vom 9. bis 13. April 2018.

2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting

The 2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting will be held 11-16 February 2018 at the Oregon Convention Center, located at 777 NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Portland, OR 97232. Cosponsored by AGU, ASLO, and TOS, the Ocean Sciences Meeting program will span a broad array of marine science topics.

Portland, Oregon’s largest city, sits on the Columbia and Willamette rivers, in the shadow of snow-capped Mount Hood. Portland is known for their eccentric locals, sophisticated yet cosmopolitan atmosphere and eco-friendly culture. It is the perfect venue for the 2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting.

The PIRATA acronym, originally defined as “Pilot Research Moored Array in the Tropical Atlantic” in 1997, has been changed in 2008 to “Prediction and Research Moored Array in the Tropical Atlantic”. PIRATA is a multinational observation network, established to improve our knowledge and understanding of ocean-atmosphere variability in the tropical Atlantic. It is a joint project of Brazil, France and the United States of America. For more information, visit the main PIRATA web site, including data display and delivery.

PICES - 4th International Symposium

The Effects of Climate Change on the World's Oceans


The 4th International Symposium will bring together experts from around the world to better understand climate impacts on ocean ecosystems – and how to respond. 

The Symposium will:

  • Highlight the latest information on how oceans are changing, what is at risk and how to respond;
  • Identify key knowledge gaps;
  • Promote collaborations; and
  • Stimulate the next generation of science and actions

The Symposium will include:

  • Great sessions, presentations, and posters
  • Opportunities for pre- or post-meeting workshops
  • Special events for early career scientists
  • Sponsorship and Exhibit Opportunities

Key Topic Areas:

  • Characterization of ocean changes and the climate-ocean system
  • Extreme and abrupt changes in ocean systems
  • Impacts of changing climate on ocean physical, chemical and biological conditions
  • Impacts of changing climate on ocean-dependent sectors, societies and economies
  • Responding to climate-related changes in ocean conditions – Governance, institutional and sectoral adaptations
  • Advancing methods to project climate-related impacts in ocean ecosystems

Reminder: SFB 754 International Conference

The distribution of oxygen in the ocean is controlled by physical, biogeochemical and biological processes. Both the supply and consumption of oxygen are sensitive to climate change in ways that are not fully understood.

Recent observations suggest that the oxygen content of the ocean is declining (ocean de­oxy­genation) and that oxygen minimum zones and coastal hypoxia sites are expanding with tremendous effects on the ocean’s ecosystems and living organisms.

This conference will:

  • focus on the past, present and future state of oxygen in the ocean on global, regional and local scales
  • nalyse mechanisms and feedbacks critical to identify natural and anthropogenic causes of oxygen variability
  • determine impacts on biogeochemical cycles and ecosystems

The call for submission opens December 2017.
