Upcoming Milestones 2017-06-12T18:22:14+00:00

The following are draft dates and milestones projected in January 2017 as a result of the Actions identified during the 2016 DOOS Workshop.  It is highly likely that this list will be modified once the Project leadership is fully formed in mid-2017.

Planning

  • Obtain further input to science question – e.g., further engage the Earth Science community​
  • Finalize Deep EOVs – update specs and complete, Examine past EOV Coverage​
  • Identify gaps and emerging systems – develop task teams to address these​
  • Generate pilot studies (that integrate key questions)​
  • Develop Science Guidance and Implementation Plan​
  • Develop Technology Roadmap for deep observing, include tech transfer and capacity building​

Data

  • Form a deep data team, Complete the ocean inventory, Conduct a deep data audit​
  • Collate and post best practices for deep observing​
  • Develop Technology Roadmap for deep observing, include tech transfer and capacity building​

Communicate and Coordinate

  • Promote existing deep observing opportunities to the science community​
  • Raise awareness of deep observing importance – public and policy makers​
  • Identify linkages and conduct events with stakeholders (industry, intergovernmental agencies)​
  • Build partnerships to encourage use of deep observing data, incl. intergovernmental organizations (DOSI, IPBES, INDEEP, IPCC, WCRP, NGOs).​

Projected Dates

  • February 2017: Identification of DOOS Project Co-chairs
  • June 2017: Formation of a DOOS Steering Committee
  • July 2017: Project structure agreed to by leadership
  • August 2017: Approval of final draft of the DOOS Consultative Draft Report
