Greenland Ice Sheet Ocean Observing System (GrIOOS) Workshop

A two day workshop will be held on December 12-13 in San Francisco, USA, to discuss the design and implementation of a Greenland Ice Sheet Ocean Observing System (GrIOOS). The aim of GrIOOS is to provide long-term time series of critical in situ glaciological, oceanographic and atmospheric parameters at several key locations around Greenland. Observations will provide much needed information on the time-evolving relationships between the different climate forcings and glacier flow.

Opportunity to submit research ideas for the North Pacific Research Board 2016 Request for Proposals

This is an invitation and opportunity to submit ideas for potential research topics to be included in the 2016 North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) Request for Proposals (RFP) to be released in October 2015.

Oceans 2015 Reports: Climate Change Impacts on the Ocean

Two reports of the Oceans 2015 Initiative are now available. These reports summarize the key findings of the Fifth IPCC Assessment Report (AR5) and bring in newer literature to assess the impacts of ocean warming, acidification, deoxygenation, and sea level rise, linking ocean physics and chemistry to biological processes and ecosystem functions (Part I), and ecosystem services and ocean-related human activities (Part II).
