Join Us at the OOI Deep Ocean Observing Workshop

[media type="image" path="/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/CEV-OOI-Cabled-Array.jpg" alt="Image of OOI Cabled Array" link="#"][/media]

On August 27-29, 2018, an Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) Deep Ocean Observing Workshop will be held in Seattle, WA.

This workshop will provide an interdisciplinary forum to develop deep ocean science questions and identify societal needs that could be addressed using the existing OOI infrastructure. The workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to gather detailed information about OOI infrastructure, data availability, and discuss existing and prospective Essential Ocean Variables that deep-water observatories can address. Particular attention will be paid to the capabilities and utility of the OOI Regional Cabled Array. Two days of presentations and breakout groups will be followed by one day for drafting concepts and project outlines.

Expected workshop outcomes may include identification of new cabled and stand-alone instrumentation and platforms needed to address Deep Ocean Observing Strategy goals and opportunities to leverage other regional ocean observing assets (e.g., the US Integrated Ocean Observing System – Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems, Oceans Network Canada). Lessons learned from the experience of developing these assets could be discussed. This workshop will help build and expand the deep-ocean user community interested in the NE Pacific.

Join us in the OceanHackWeek 2018 to explore Data Science in Oceanography!

Please join us at the OceanHackWeek 2018, August 20-24, 2018, at the University of Washington, Seattle, in collaboration with the UW eScience Institute. This 5-day hands-on workshop is aimed at exploring, creating and promoting effective computation and analysis workflows for large and complex oceanographic data. The focus will be on data provided by the National Science Foundation’s Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI). Comparisons to other large-scale ocean observing assets, such as Argo, IOOS, etc. are welcome and encouraged.

Different from conventional conferences and workshops, the OceanHackWeek is constructed based on three core components: tutorials in data science methodologies such as data visualization and cloud computing, peer-learning, and on-site project work in a collaborative environment. We welcome all self-identified oceanographers at all career stages to apply, and hope you will join us in this exciting endeavor!

Travel and lodging grants are available for non-local accepted participants. Participants are expected to attend the entire workshop.

More information is available on: 

To apply, please fill out the application by May 7, 2018. Accepted applicants will be notified no later than May 21, 2018.

For questions, feel free to email
