Members of the OOI Program Management Office, Data Team, and Marine Implementing Organizations will be present at the upcoming 2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting in Portland, Oregon Feb. 11-16, 2018.
The OOI will have a booth in the Exhibit Hall. Additionally members of the OOI Team will have presentations and posters.
Additionally, there will be a special session on Ocean Observatory Science chaired by members of the OOI as well as other observatories.
Ocean Observatory Science – From Events to Climate (Session ID#: 27547):
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.
This session will be chaired by Richard Dewey, Ocean Networks Canada, Jack Barth, Oregon State University, Deb Kelley, University of Washington, and John Trowbridge, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
Note that Abstract submissions for this session is open until September 6, 2017. Please visit the OSM18 event page to submit and abstract.
