Workshop 1. Ocean observation: Strategic framework

David Checkley (Scripps Institution of Oceanography, USA)
Candyce Clark (Climate Project Office, NOAA, USA)

The ocean observation workshop is to address the new multidisciplinary requirements (both climate and nonclimate) being placed on the marine observing community. The primary objective of the workshop is to begin consideration of the approaches needed to move these new multidisciplinary and diverse observing requirements forward into the next decade. Particular attention will be to follow up on the discussions at the symposium theme session on “Systematic, sustained and integrated global ocean observations” that are directed at how to integrate new biogeochemical, biodiversity and ecosystem shifts observations into a sustained observing system integrated with established monitoring systems. The Framework for Ocean Observing document will serve as the foundation for these exchanges. A panel of several scientists with diverse expertise is selected to prepare short presentations and then lead the audience in discussion. An intense effort to incorporate early career scientists into the workshop is essential to ensure that a cadre of future observationalists is available.
