IS34B:
Best Practices for Building a Global Ocean Observing System Responsive to Societal Needs by Linking Basin-Scale Efforts Around the Globe I Posters

Session ID#: 85812

Session Description:
What are the best strategies for integrated, sustained, and full-depth observation of entire ocean basins at synoptic scales? How do such basin-scale systems aggregate and contribute to a global observing system? What are the needs for such observations for societal benefit, including advancing Earth system science? The objective of the session is to outline strategies that advance the fundamental understanding of ocean circulation, biogeochemistry, and of life in the sea, as measured together, to enhance a fit-for-purpose global observing system. The scope of basin-scale observing spans relevant land, coastal, air-sea to deep ocean processes to better understand land-sea interactions, bolster monitoring, enhance forecasting, promote the conservation and sustainable use of coastal and ocean resources, inform climate change adaptation strategies, and promote a vibrant ocean economy. We seek presentations on observing strategies that help build a cohesive multidisciplinary and global community around sets of documented and accessible methods, sometimes referred to as “best practices”. These practices will also guide applications of integrated biological, physical, chemical, and geological observing elements, both in situ and remotely sensed, and models. Presentations may also provide ideas for governance of basin-wide observing systems, advancing Essential Ocean Variables, information management, and improve and optimise design, review system performance and ensure timely and trusted data and information flows.
