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.

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.
Royal honour for SAMS president
The president of SAMS, the Scottish Association for Marine Science, has been awarded a royal medal for his lifetime’s work developing and promoting glaciology.
Glaciologist Professor Geoffrey Boulton received The Royal Geographical Society’s prestigious Founder’s Gold Medal at this year’s recent annual presentation. Approved by the queen, the Society’s royal medals are among the highest awards of their kind in the world, and are presented annually in recognition of excellence and outstanding achievements in geographical research and fieldwork, teaching and public engagement.
