Best practices for biogeochemical ocean observation: instrumentation, operation, quality control

15-17 June 2022 at the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS), Oban, Scotland

Hybrid event – in-person and virtual attendance

Organized by an international group from all around the Atlantic: Europe, US, South America, and Afrika

Biogeochemical measurements in ocean observing systems allow for assessment and sustainable management of oceanic ecosystems, yet they are underrepresented and underutilized. We created a POGO observational training to increase utilization of biogeochemical data sets. We will share our experiences with moored and float biogeochemical sensors made by different projects to train you. Let us grow the biogeochemical observing system together.

Are you an Early Career Scientist? – Awesome, there is some funding available for travel, registration fees and observations (We define Early Career Scientist generally as PhD candidates or Postdocs who received their PhD within the past seven years. Some exceptions may be considered on an individual basis.)

Registration fee

(only payable if your application was successful):

– 100€ physical attendance

– 50€ virtual attendance

You will get information if your application was successful via email in April.
