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.

2019 Special POGO Visiting Fellowship for Ship-board Training on an Antarctic Deep Water Rates of Export (ANDREX) Cruise

POGO is pleased to announce that in partnership with Plymouth Marine Laboratory, it is offering a POGO-PML Visiting Fellowship for training on-board an Antarctic Deep Water Rates of Export (ANDREX) Cruise.

 

The selected candidate will have the opportunity to visit Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) for one month prior to the start of the cruise to participate in cruise preparation and planning; and to go on the cruise (14th February to 10th April 2019) to help make biogeochemical observations (carbonate and oxygen chemistry).

 

Training Course on Marine Radioactivity, 20-22 February 2019, Puerto Rico

Application deadline extended to October 30th, 2018.

 

A three day training workshop is being offered on marine radioactivity on February 20-22, 2019 in University of Puerto Rico at Río Piedras, Puerto Rico. The site and timing was chosen to precede the ASLO Ocean Sciences meeting, starting Feb. 24th, for those interested in attending both events.

 

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.

POGO Statement on the Value of Ocean Observations

Quote

 

“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.”
