POGO: Taking the Pulse of the Global Ocean

Since 1999, the Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean, 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.

International Training Workshop on Marine Satellite Remote Sensing and Argo Monitoring Technologies (Sat-Argo)

This workshop will be held in Hangzhou, China during November 12-26, 2018. 

 

Closing date for applications is 10 September.

 

The objectives of this training workshop are: 1) to train researches and marine management staffs in marine satellite remote-sensing and Argo technologies to enhance their communication and interaction; 2) to assist developing countries in utilizing remote sensing and Argo data and the data processing and analysis techniques to monitor ocean environments.

 

Job Opportunity: Postdoctoral Position in Marine Metals Science, University of Southern California, USA

The John Lab at the University of Southern California is seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher to study metal biogeochemistry in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre.

 

There is significant flexibility in the specific topic of research…what seems most exciting to you? Potential areas of study include the impact of metals on viral infection dynamics, molecular biology techniques to decipher in situ biological influences on metal and metal isotope cycling, and modeling metal-biological interactions in the North Pacific and beyond.

 

Job Opportunity: Postdoctoral Scholar in Experimental Chemical Thermodynamics of Seawater, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, USA

The Marine Physical Laboratory at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego is seeking a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Ocean CO2 Measurement Laboratory led by Professor Andrew Dickson.

“The biggest challenge is how to manage the oceans given that most of the world's population will be using and living next to an ocean in the next 50 years or so. We have to use our oceans in a sustainable manner, and that means first they have to be observed properly. We can't just use an ocean to decimation, without realizing what is happening. The challenge is to develop capacity and knowledge and establish where we should be observing our oceans.

One of the most important things is having consistent long-term observation. We need to link up old observations and monitor the changes in things like currents and hydrography in these areas, to investigate if the observations are related to a real trend or shift or just an anomaly in the system. POGO members are endeavouring to link all the long-term data sets in the world so that the data can be accessed more readily.”
