OOI Special Session at OSM 2018

Join OOI scientists and colleagues from other ocean observatories as they discuss the latest in ocean observatory science at the Ocean Sciences Meeting in Portland, Oregon next month.

Ocean Observatory Science: From Events to Climate

Monday 12 February, 2018

Time: 0800-1000
Location: Oregon Convention Center – E145-E146

IS12A: Ocean Observatory Science: From Events to Climate II
Time: 1030-1230
Location: Oregon Convention Center – E145-E146

IS14B: Ocean Observatory Science: From Events to Climate III Posters
Time: 1600-1800
Location: Oregon Convention Center – Poster Hall

Session Description:
We invite presentations that highlight and demonstrate all aspects of ocean observatory science. Observatories include cabled systems (e.g. ONC, OOI RCA, MVCO, LoVe, DONET), long-term time series (e.g. HOTS, BATS, ESTOC), coastal mooring arrays (e.g. the OOI Endurance and Pioneer Arrays), High Frequency Radar installations, and remote ocean sensing arrays (e.g. Argo and the OOI Global Arrays). Observatory data now include both decade long time series and broad regional spatial coverage, support interdisciplinary studies, and enable scientific investigations of marine processes, event detection, and climate assessment. We particularly encourage new and innovative research approaches and results that utilize or are only possible using ocean observatory systems. Other emphases include novel uses of high data rate sources, installations at unique sites (i.e. undersea volcanoes), continuous long-term time series, new insights into rapid environmental change, merging fixed and mobile observing systems, and observations of recent events such as the North Pacific warm anomaly, Harmful Algal Blooms, hypoxia, and the eruption of Axial Seamount.
