OASIS for a Clean Ocean
Join Observing Air-Sea Interactions Strategy (OASIS) and the Surface Ocean-Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS) for a community discussion of how observations and understanding of air-sea interactions can support a clean ocean! This is a UN Decade of Ocean Science Laboratory Satellite event.
Location & Date
This 2 hour workshop will be held virtually at the following dates and times:
18 November at 17:00 CET (Preceded and followed by a 1-hour poster session)
19 November at 02:00 CET (Preceded and followed by a 1-hour poster session)
This satellite event will highlight the integrated air-sea flux (heat, moisture, trace gases, aerosols, momentum) observation strategies and their benefits to support a clean ocean. Specific topics include understanding atmospheric winds and oceanic currents that control deposition, transport, and fate of marine debris and other types of anthropogenic pollution (such as oil spills, ship emissions, chemical deposition, plastics, etc.) and OASIS observations that are designed to monitor variables reflecting the influence of pollution on biogeochemical processes, ecosystems, and on human safety and health. With this satellite activity, we aim to bring scientists together with stakeholders to work toward greater benefits for the ocean climate and ecosystem and for society. We specifically identify with the UN Ocean Decade mission to encourage more inclusive approaches to scientific research design and outcome implementation, building robust communication, more equitably sharing and promoting knowledge and information globally, and seeking alternative funding sources. The design of this workshop specifically seeks to create opportunities to integrate local and indigenous knowledge and highlight Early Career Ocean Professional’s (ECOP) perspectives.
This 2 hour workshop will consist of 3 themed sessions including pre- recorded talks as well as live discussion, in addition to Poster/TikTok sessions to provide additional opportunities for socializing and networking. In the program schedule below, 01:00 is the top of the hour for the start of each event, and 00:00 is the start of the Poster/TikTok session in the hour preceding the presentations.
