Welcome to POGO
POGO: Taking the Pulse of the Global Ocean
For more than a decade, the Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans, POGO, has served as a forum for leaders of major oceanographic institutions around the world to promote global oceanography, particularly the implementation of international and integrated global ocean observing systems. POGO is an international network of collaborators who foster partnerships that advance efficiency and effectiveness in studying and monitoring the world’s oceans on a global scale. Through its efforts, POGO has promoted observations underpinning ocean and climate science, interpreted scientific results for decision makers, provided training and technology transfer to emerging economies, and built awareness of the many challenges still ahead.

Postdoctoral position in marine biogeochemistry at the Institute of Coastal Research, Geesthacht, Germany
The Institute of Coastal Research at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht develops and operates the coastal observing system COSYNA (www.cosyna.de), one of the densest in-situ measurement systems in the world. One major component of COSYNA is the automated underway FerryBox system mounted on “Ships of Opportunity”. The Institute of Coastal Research has developed new technologies for in-situ measurements of biological and carbon system parameters such as nutrients, phytoplankton, pH and alkalinity that are combined with observations of physical parameters.
We are looking for a qualified and motivated scientist to investigate biogeochemical processes in coastal areas mainly based on COSYNA in-situ observations. We therefore invite applications for a Postdoctoral position (m/f) in the area of Marine Biogeochemistry code no. 2014/KO 5.
International Training Programme on “Integrated Sustainable Coastal Development”
The International Training Programme on “Integrated Sustainable Coastal Development”, which consists of five compulsory phases including three self-study phases and two scheduled courses, one in Sweden, May 4-22, 2015 and one in Tanzania, October 5-16, 2015, is calling for applications.
The programme is organised jointly by NIRAS and the School of Global Studies at the University of Gothenburg, and in close collaboration with the Western Indian Ocean Marine Science Association, WIOMSA.

Senior Staff Associate position in division of Geochemistry at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory
A Senior Staff Associate position is available at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University in the division of Geochemistry. The Senior Staff Associate will have independent operation of 2 mass spectrometers for fully automated measurement of helium isotopes, neon and tritium (radioactive hydrogen) in water samples at ultra-low concentrations. Further development of hardware and software to improve performance, reliability, and throughput of the systems. Will have oversight of the operation of the extraction laboratory where the gases measured in the mass spectrometer laboratory are extracted from water samples.
