AN OCEAN OF OPPORTUNITY
September 16-20, 2019
Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
As part of the decadal conference series, OceanObs’19 will galvanize the ocean observing community ranging from scientists to end users. OceanObs’19 seeks to improve response to scientific and societal needs of a fit-for-purpose integrated ocean observing system, for better understanding the environment of the Earth, monitoring climate, and informing adaptation strategies as well as the sustainable use of ocean resources.
OceanObs’19 will continue to develop strategies for a sustained, multidisciplinary and integrated ocean observing system, and better connect user communities and observers. Input (in the form of Community White Papers), will help shape strategy development throughout the conference and for the upcoming decade. The conference and Community White Papers will revolve around 10 vital societal benefit themes and the conference objectives. Additional synthesis and vision papers will be developed from input during the conference.
