Air-Sea Observations for an Accessible Ocean
This UN Decade of Ocean Science Laboratory Satellite event — OASIS for an Accessible Ocean: Air-sea fluxes virtual workshop — had three blocks focusing on stakeholder needs for air-sea interaction information. OASIS brought the international community together to share information about how OASIS can assist in strengthening the FAIR treatment of ocean data, to gather information about the community needs to strengthen this FAIR treatment of data, and to gather information about the timelines for reaching FAIR data principles within different air-sea flux data streams.

The OASIS for an Accessible Ocean: FAIR data for air-sea fluxes satellite activity was a 2 hour event, including four 30-minute sessions. Three 30-minute sessions included 2 live or pre-recorded 5-minute talks followed by ~20-minutes of discussion. The final 30-minute session was for networking within the gather.town platform. The overall timing of the event was as follows:
00:00 Virtual Workshop begins
00:00 Introduction & Block 1: OASIS strategy of FAIR principles for an accessible ocean
00:30 Block 2: Carbon fluxes
01:00 Block 3: Momentum and heat fluxes
01:30 Networking in Gather.Town
Results of the discussions and concluding outcomes will be documented, distributed to the event participants, UN Ocean Decade Laboratory organizers, other OASIS teams, and the broader scientific, industry and civil communities.
