IS51A:
Sustained Ocean Observing: From Events to Assessing Long-Term Ecosystem Patterns I

Session ID#: 93282

Session Description:
Sustained ocean time series measurements are critical for characterizing marine ecosystem shifts and geophysical events in a time of accelerating and at times unpredictable changes. Increased coordination and data integration across time series programs stand to enhance the regional and global knowledge gained from these observing programs. We invite presentations that highlight and demonstrate all aspects of ocean observatory science and science derived from ocean observing systems. Observatories include cabled systems (e.g. ONC, OOI, MVCO, LoVe, DONET), long-term time series (e.g. HOTS, BATS, ESTOC), ocean observing arrays (e.g. Argo, OOI Arrays), and High Frequency Radar installations. Recent global collaborations such as the International Group on Marine Ecological Time Series (IGMETS) have shown the value of synthesizing data across multiple platforms and associated spatiotemporal scales. We encourage similar innovative approaches utilizing ocean observing platforms to study climate signals in continuous long-term time series including rapid environmental change, novel applications of ocean time series data to assess and/or mitigate associated impacts on marine ecosystem chemistry, function and services, and develop data analysis tools and numerical methods for working with complex, multi-platform data streams.
