DOOS Specials Sessions at OSM 2018

Interested in the societal applications of deep ocean observations?
Looking to for an update on the latest technology advances to observe the deep ocean?

Make sure to attend the two Deep Ocean Observing Strategy special sessions
at the upcoming Ocean Sciences Meeting:

– 12 February – Ocean Science: Informing Policy, Management, and the Public (Part I, Part II, Part III)
– 13 February – Technology Advances in Deep-Ocean Observing

Ocean Science: Informing Policy, Management, and the Public

Monday 12 February, 2018

The session is divided up into three parts:

ED11A: Ocean Science: Informing Policy, Management, and the Public I
Time: 0800-1000
Location: Oregon Convention Center – F150

ED12A: Ocean Science: Informing Policy, Management, and the Public II
Time: 1030-1230
Location: Oregon Convention Center – F150

ED14A: Ocean Science: Informing Policy, Management, and the Public III Posters
Time: 1600-1800
Location: Oregon Convention Center – Poster Hall

Bringing science to the forefront of policy discussions is important for sound decision-making and the sustainability of the world’s oceans. Ocean science can inform policies to address some of the most challenging issues including ocean acidification, fisheries management, habitat alteration, and pollution. Understanding the interaction between humans, oceans and the important ecosystem services on which people rely requires a wide range of expertise, including the scientific community. Many scientists want to broaden the impact of their research, but don’t know how or where to start. In this session, presenters will discuss how they’ve engaged with policy- and decision makers, what policy- and decision makers want to know, and what kinds of contributions scientists can make to policy development and implementation. Several examples are provided from the deep-ocean realm, where the imperative is growing for science observations to inform policy and management.

IS24E: Technology Advances in Deep-Ocean Observing Posters

Tuesday, February 13, 2018

Time: 1600-1800
Location: Oregon Convention Center – Poster Hall

Challenges for observing the deep ocean are to expand existing sensors and platforms to greater depth, resolve smaller signals, correct for pressure-induced error, and develop new technologies for measuring deep-ocean specific essential ocean variables.

This session solicits abstracts on sensors and platforms advancements for deep observations to address
i. the role of the deep ocean in the Earth’s heat and freshwater budgets, carbon cycle, and sea level change,
ii. deep-ocean circulation and mixing,
iii. deep water mass formation,
iv. the fluxes of nutrients, tracers, oxygen, and carbon in the deep ocean,
v. the response of (i-iv) to natural and anthropogenic stress factors.
