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.

How Can POGO Help with Recovery of Science from the Chilean Earthquake?

One year after the disaster, the University of Concepcion (UDEC) has made good progress towards the recovery of its research infrastructure. They have received contributions from various sources and are very grateful to all those who contributed. However, the losses were substantial and further contributions and help would be appreciated. At the POGO-12 Meeting in Seoul (January 2011), a number of suggestions were put forward on how POGO could help the University of Concepcion in their efforts to recover some of the research infrastructure that was damaged or lost during the tsunami in 2010.
