On 27-29 August, 2018, an Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) Deep Ocean Observing Workshop will be held in Seattle, WA.

This workshop will provide an interdisciplinary forum to develop deep ocean science questions and identify societal needs that could be addressed using the existing OOI infrastructure. The workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to gather detailed information about OOI infrastructure, data availability, and discuss existing and prospective Essential Ocean Variables that deep-water observatories can address. Particular attention will be paid to the capabilities and utility of the OOI Cabled Array. Two days of presentations and breakout groups will be followed by one day for drafting concepts and project outlines.

A short form for expressing interested is located on the OOI website. Please respond by 1 June for primary consideration.
