New generation of scientists to investigate ocean, atmosphere and climate interactions in North to South Atlantic Ocean Transect

Coinciding with the COP22 Marrakech Climate Change Conference, the next generation of oceanographers will receive training in the skills required to investigate ocean, atmosphere and climate interactions. Twenty-five international post-graduate scholars selected from a total of 212 applicants will be departing from Bremerhaven, Germany on 12th November, heading south along the west African coast to complete the transect in Cape Town, South Africa on 12th December.

A new SOCAT paper highlights its wide scientific impact

We would like to let you know about the publication of the SOCAT version 3 article in the Earth System Science Data (ESSD, open-access journal) entitled: "A multi-decade record of high-quality fCO2 data in version 3 of the Surface Ocean CO2 Atlas (SOCAT)." This "living data" publication documents the methods and data sets used for the assembly of SOCATv3 data collection and compares these with those used for earlier versions.

Announcement of Opportunity for RoSES
