OASIS for a Clean Ocean Satellite Activity for UN Ocean Decade Clean Ocean Laboratory – 18 & 19 November 2021

Please join Observing Air-Sea Interactions Strategy (OASIS) and SOLAS for a community discussion of how observations and understanding of air-sea interactions can support a clean ocean! This satellite event of the UN Ocean Decade Clean Ocean Laboratory will highlight integrated air-sea flux observation strategies and their benefits to support a clean ocean, while hearing from Early Career Ocean Professionals (ECOP) and stakeholders.

The OASIS for a Clean Ocean virtual event will run twice, on 18 November from 17:00 CET and 19 November from 02:00 CET. There will be time before and after the formal session to browse posters and TikTok videos, socialize, and network with colleagues. Event website: https://airseao bs.org/oasis-for-a-clean-oceanPlease register at no cost here.

Session 1) impacts of marine pollution What are the effects of pollution on air-sea biogeochemical processes, harmful algal blooms, and other processes?
Session 2) techniques in observing/understanding marine pollution What are the observational (remotely-sensed and in situ) and model tools used to support a Clean Ocean? What’s missing?
Session 3) OASIS strategy for a clean ocean What specific steps should the UN Ocean Decade OASIS programme take to support a Clean Ocean?
