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.

State of the Gulf Summit Attended by NOAA Administrator

New Chinese Research Vessel Launch

The latest addition to the Chinese research vessel fleet, Kexue (meaning "Science") cost about 550 million renminbi (US$86 million), and will be able to carry 80 people at a top speed of 15 knots on voyages of 28,000 kilometres, lasting up to 60 days. The CAS Institute of Oceanology in Qingdao, Shandong province, a POGO member, was in charge of Kexue’s design and operation. Director Sun Song commented that "It is modelled on the United Kingdom’s RRS James Cook and Norway’s G.O. Sars" and “It is on a par with these top research vessels".

MARACOOS Takes the Ocean's Pulse for Public Benefit

A University of Delaware-led network in the Mid-Atlantic has its finger on the ocean’s “pulse” and is putting that data to use - to save lives, improve flood warnings, protect fish stocks from overfishing while enhancing the fishing experience, save shipping time and fuel costs, and even spawn new businesses. These are just a few of the applications, both real and potential, for the extensive data being gathered by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Association Coastal Ocean Observing System (MARACOOS).
