  • Title: Background
    Descriptive info: Background.. Ocean carbon research, observations, and modelling are conducted at national, regional, and global levels to quantify the global ocean uptake of atmospheric CO.. and to understand controls of this process, the variability of uptake and vulnerability of carbon fluxes into the ocean.. These science activities require support by a sustained, international effort that provides a central communication forum and coordination services to facilitate the compatibility and comparability of results from individual efforts and development of the ocean carbon data products that can be integrated with the terrestrial, atmospheric and human dimensions components of the global carbon cycle.. As early as 1979, the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) recognized the importance of the ocean’s role in global climate change and formed the first Committee on Climate Change and the Ocean (CCCO) which, in 1984, established a CO.. Advisory Panel, to provide international coordination for ocean carbon and biogeochemical measurements.. The Panel called for a carbon observation program and sampling strategy that could determine the global oceanic CO.. inventory to an accuracy of 10-20 petagrams of carbon (Pg C), which was at least twice as accurate as the best estimates at the time.. In 1987, SCOR and the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU, now the International Council for Science) gathered the leading experts on ocean carbon cycle science for a meeting in Paris to agree on the goals, scientific elements, and organizational structure for an internationally coordinated research project known as the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS).. Meeting participants recognized that understanding the ocean carbon cycle would be central to JGOFS and that global oceanic CO.. measurements would be critical to that understanding.. At the same time, the international physical oceanographic community was also organizing the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE).. At the intersection of the WOCE and JGOFS projects was an opportunity for a comprehensive global survey of ocean carbon distributions that could accomplish the CO.. inventory goal set by the CCCO CO.. Advisory Panel.. In September 1988, the Joint SCOR-JGOFS-CCCO Advisory Panel on Ocean CO.. was created to provide the primary focal point for international planning and commitments for implementing the carbon observations.. The Panel facilitated the standardization of analyses by helping to organize instrument comparison exercises and establishing internationally agreed standard protocols.. By January 1994, the Panel had helped produce the protocols for the JGOFS core measurements and the.. CO.. Methods Handbook.. which included the use of newly developed Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) for the inorganic carbon measurements.. With the completion of the JGOFS/WOCE field components in the late 1990s and the emergence of the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS), the CO.. Advisory Panel was restructured as the Joint SCOR-IOC Advisory Panel on Ocean CO.. , with a focus on developing  ...   the community to estimate that the total accumulation of anthropogenic CO.. in the ocean between 1800 and 1994 was 118 +/- 19 Pg C, just within the uncertainty goals set by the original SCOR-IOC-CCCO CO2 Advisory Panel 20 years earlier.. In the early 2000s, the existing model of coordination of ocean carbon science activities by a small advisory panel that made recommendations was no longer able to meet the coordination needs of the community.. With this incentive, the SCOR-IOC Advisory Panel on Ocean CO.. joined with the newly formed Global Carbon Project (GCP) to develop a pilot project called the International Ocean Carbon Coordination Project (IOCCP).. A new approach to international coordination, focused on implementing coordination actions rather than simply providing scientific and technical advice, was developed with support from the sponsor organizations for secretariat support for the project.. The IOCCP continued to coordinate a highly diverse set of activities to facilitate the development of globally acceptable strategies, methodologies, practices and standards, homogenizing efforts of the research community and scientific advisory groups as well as integrating ocean carbon programs and activities into globally integrated Earth system observing networks.. After two international stakeholders’ meetings, the IOCCP was recognized as a successful model for global-scale coordination and was requested to expand its mandate to include communication and coordination services for the full range of ocean carbon variables (not only CO.. ) and to assist the global, regional, and national research programs, as requested, with coordination of research activities (not just large-scale observations).. In 2005, IOC and SCOR agreed to make the IOCCP a standing project, replacing the CO.. Panel, with new terms of reference approved by the SCOR Executive Council and the 23rd Session of the IOC Assembly.. The IOCCP, with its activities evolving to meet new challenges as the science progresses coordinates a highly diverse set of ocean carbon activities (e.. g.. , repeat hydrography, underway pCO2, ocean time-series stations, ocean acidification, surface and interior ocean synthesis activities, data products, standards and methods) through extensive collaboration and dialogue with the scientific community via national and international organizations, scientific steering committees, scientific workshops, and expert meetings.. IOCCP also works closely with numerous research and observation programs to maintain the most up-to-date and accurate information possible.. The IOCCP also works directly with the GOOS-GCOS-WCRP Ocean Observations Panel for Climate (OOPC) and the WMO-IOC Joint Technical Commission on Oceanography and Marine Meteorology (JCOMM) to integrate ocean carbon observation information into the plans of the Global Observing Systems for Climate in support of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the World Summit on Sustainable Development, the Group on Earth Observations, and other international and intergovernmental strategies.. To learn more about the history of coordination of the global ocean carbon observations please read.. this article.. published in the.. Oceanography.. magazine by Chris Sabine and colleagues in 2010..

    Descriptive info: IOCCP CONVEYOR.. No.. 33, January 2013.. A Word from the Editor.. Update on the Surface Ocean CO2 Atlas.. Global Intercomparability in a Changing Ocean: An International Time-Series Methods Workshop.. The Global Ocean Data Analysis Product version 2.. The Global Carbon Budget 2012.. The Legacy of in situ Iron Enrichment Experiments: Creation of a Relational, Open-Access Database.. EPOCA, the first international project on ocean acidification came to an end.. Changes in the IOCCP Project Office.. Download a pdf version of the current issue.. IOCCP Conveyor Archvies.. Dear Ocean Carbon Community,.. Happy New Year!.. Another year of challenges, successes and occasional failure has just started.. As you refine your goals for the coming year, remember that IOCCP is always here to help.. International coordination of ocean observing networks is an ever more complex task and our New Year's resolution is to help connect efforts of various elements of the global ocean observing system so that "our" biogeochemical observations can be made more cost-efficiently, can cover larger areas more frequently and last but not least can be more easily combined with data gathered by others.. As we reflect on the past year, it's obvious that the IOCCP has undergone several organizational changes but our core mission and key directions stay the same.. This issue of the IOCCP Conveyor sums up major on-going community undertakings and provides an update on some changes that we have been through in 2012.. We are looking forward to a fruitful collaboration in 2013!.. Return.. The Surface Ocean CO2 Atlas (SOCAT) was publicly released 16 months ago with 6.. 3 million global surface ocean CO2 observations made around the world from research vessels, commercial ships and mooring between 1968 and 2007.. This dataset, put together by approximately 50 international seagoing marine carbon scientists and data managers, is available at the SOCAT website together with ancillary documentation including metadata files, quality control protocols, software description, a list of publications describing the SOCAT process and workshop reports providing mostly technical insight into SOCAT developments.. Almost 5 years of work on SOCAT project has revealed major room for improvement in the way that scientists report and document and quality control their data.. Also significant amount of additional data for years 1968-2007 and new data for years 2008-2011 was made available to the SOCAT team over the last 16 months.. The SOCAT community, with strong support from IOCCP, has been addressing both issues and we hope that we will be able to reveal the results in the first half of 2013.. The group met three times over the last year and had several virtual meetings to work on the automation of the data submission and quality control procedures as well as on the quality control of the data submitted since the release of the first version of SOCAT (SOCATv1.. 5, 14 September 2011).. The quality control procedures for the second version of SOCAT (SOCATv2) are mostly finished and the dataset will expand by approximately 50% in terms of number of cruises as well as number of data points.. The time coverage will be expanded through December 2011.. The procedures for automation of data submission and data quality control are being finalized and are hoped to be implemented in the third version of SOCAT (SOCATv3).. The SOCAT community and the IOCCP would like to thank all the contributors for their time and effort to date.. At the same time we would like to strongly encourage marine carbon scientists to promptly submit their surface water CO2 data with accompanying documentation for inclusion in future SOCAT releases.. A Global Intercomparability in a Changing Ocean: An International Time-Series Methods Workshop was jointly convened by IOCCP and the U.. S.. Ocean Carbon Biogeochemistry (OCB) Program.. The workshop was held on November 28-30, at the Bermuda Institute for Ocean Sciences (BIOS), home of the Bermuda Atlantic Time-series Study (BATS), one of the longest ship-based biogeochemical time-series.. The workshop was the third in a series of workshops focusing on ship-based biogeochemical time-series that started in 2008 with the "Changing Times: An International Ocean Biogeochemistry Time-series Workshop"; this was followed by the "Sea Change: Charting the course for ecological and biogeochemical ocean time series research" workshop in 2010.. However, unlike the previous two, this workshop focused specifically on the methods employed by each time-series with the aim of enhancing data comparability between sites.. In order to monitor and differentiate natural cycles and human-driven changes in the global oceans, it is important that time-series methodologies (sampling and analytical protocols) be transparent, consistent, and inter-comparable.. Despite the fact that many biogeochemical time-series have used the JGOFS protocols as a basis for their sampling and analytical methodologies, several adaptations have been made based on local oceanographic conditions (e.. , open ocean vs.. coastal) and several other factors.. To date, no thorough intercomparison among time-series methodologies has been conducted at a global scale.. The workshop goals, aimed at addressing this important issue, included the following:.. Review current oceanographic time-series core sampling and analytical methodologies and rationale behind protocol differences.. To the extent possible, attempt to define standardized methods applicable across time-series.. Attempt to reconcile differences in variable nomenclature.. Examine new techniques available for more accurate and simplified measurements.. Generate a list of suggestions on how automated sensors may improve the type and accuracy of core measurements taken at time-series sites.. Coordinate a best practices publication on sampling and measurement protocols to facilitate data inter-comparison across time-series sites.. With representation from 17 countries and 33 time-series around the globe, this workshop convened scientists and technicians who not only possessed an understanding of the scientific goals and methodological rationale at their sites, but they also had ample hands-on experience with sample collection and analyses.. To set the stage for in-depth smaller group discussions, the workshop opened with a series of plenary overview talks that highlighted scientific advances and insights derived from time-series data, as well as the logistical challenges of maintaining these critical community resources.. The workshop then broke into smaller groups to discuss and compare sampling protocols and analytical methods across the time-series sites.. There were nine different working groups, each focusing on a different set of biogeochemical parameters, including Pigments, In Line Measurements, CTD Parameters and Discrete Calibrations, Inorganic Macro- and Micronutrients, Biomass, Carbonate System, Rates, Trap Fluxes, and Organic Matter.. Outcomes and recommendations.. Below are some of the key outcomes and recommendations of the workshop; this is a very brief summary of the main points discussed.. The working groups were very thorough and examined the methodologies carefully, and the detailed recommendations of these discussions will be published in the final report.. The first clear recommendation from the workshop is that there is a sore need for metadata.. While the methods described are generally very similar, there are subtle differences that may affect data intercomparability.. It is critical that this information be reported via the metadata.. The workshop organizers will revise and expand the master site compilation to include more detailed information about the methods; workshop participants committed themselves to providing this additional requested material following the workshop.. Many sites also have a long history of testing their methods for improvement; it is suggested that all of the information be made available, so as to better determine why some things are done the way they are (less anecdotal and more objective - e.. order of sample drawing, time for sampling certain variables, etc).. In the interest of improving internal consistency within individual  ...   nutrients and trace metals) and to tie these to present-day chemical and biological observations; Theme 2 studied the sensitivity of marine organisms, communities and ecosystems to ocean acidification.. Key climate-relevant biogeochemical processes such as calcification, primary production and nitrogen fixation were investigated using a large array of techniques, ranging from molecular tools to physiological and ecological approaches.. Perturbation experiments were carried out both in the laboratory and in the field, including a major large-scale offshore mesocosm experiment in Svalbard in the summer of 2010; Theme 3 focused on the integration of the results from Themes 1 and 2 in biogeochemical, sediment, and coupled ocean-climate models to better understand and project the responses of the Earth system to ocean acidification.. Special attention was paid to feedbacks of physiological changes on the carbon, nitrogen, sulfur and iron cycles and how these changes will affect and be affected by future climate change; Theme 4 synthesized the results from Themes 1-3 and assessed uncertainties, risks and thresholds ("tipping points") related to ocean acidification at scales ranging from sub-cellular to ecosystem and local to global scales.. A second focus of this theme was to communicate the findings to fellow scientists but also to policy makers, media, schools and the general public.. Activities beyond the core research themes undertaken by the EPOCA scientists included:.. Software development.. EPOCA scientists have designed and continues to develop the R software package seacarb (Gattuso Lavigne, 2009; Lavigne Gattuso, 2011).. seacarb calculates parameters of the carbonate system.. It also comprises new functions aimed at assisting the design of ocean acidification perturbation experiments.. The seacarb package can be downloaded from the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN).. Best Practices Guide.. EPOCA and IOC-UNESCO led the production of the community reviewed "Guide to best practices in ocean acidification research and data reporting", a collaborative effort of EPOCA and international colleagues to make sure that experiments on ocean acidification are properly and effectively carried out, and to facilitate comparisons of studies.. After the launch in May 2010 and after distribution of more than 700 copies, a revised version was printed in 2011.. The guide is available free of charge online and in print.. Over 1000 copies have been distributed worldwide.. Ocean acidification blog.. EPOCA has maintained an information outlet on ocean acidification with information on scientific articles, job opportunities, projects, press releases and media coverage.. Check out the blog here.. EPOCA data management.. Two EPOCA databases were maintained.. The observational database, hosted at Pangaea, includes data from perturbation experiments as well as data from five cruises, two repeat transects, one time-series station and one site survey.. The modeling database is hosted at LSCE and comprises outputs from seven Earth System Models, most of which were used in the IPCC's last assessment report AR4.. These models, which account for changes in climate as well as increasing atmospheric CO2, include IPSL-CM4-LOOP, CSM1.. 4, CCSM3, BCM-C, COSMOS, and HadCM3LC, and UVIC2.. 8.. Some of the observational data and modelling data archive are publicly available and can be accessed via the EPOCA website.. Outreach and communication.. EPOCA has led an intense effort on communication the findings of the project to a wider public, including policy makers and other stakeholders, schools and the general public.. Key outreach products include the guides produced by the Reference User Group (quality-controlled by EPOCA scientists to ensure scientific accuracy) and a "Frequently Asked Questions" document, all produced in several languages and widely distributed.. These and other products can also be downloaded from the EPOCA website.. EPOCA contributed to advancing the state of knowledge on ocean acidification and its impact on marine organisms and ecosystems.. It produced 21% of the research papers on ocean acidification published during the period 2009-2012, and leaves behind key products that should prove useful to the research community and policymakers.. Research on ocean acidification will continue through several national and regional projects, however the SOLAS-IMBER Working Group on Ocean Acidification and the International Ocean Acidification Reference User Group have identified the need to coordinate ocean acidification research at the international level.. They have prepared and submitted a proposal to launch an Ocean Acidification International Coordination Center which, when funded, will allow for truly global coordination of ocean acidification research and observations.. Jean-Pierre Gattuso and Lina Hansson.. We had two major changes in the IOCCP office last year: an unexpected relocation of the Project Office and 50% staff reduction.. Luckily, the new IOCCP hosts proved to be extremely helpful and supportive and we are not far from securing relevant funds to hire the "missing" staff.. Below you can read a brief explanation of how it all happened.. Project Office relocation.. The IOCCP staff salary support has been provided by the US National Science Foundation (NSF) since the formation of the project.. Salary support for Project Director and Deputy Director was most recently provided by a 3-year grant from US NSF to the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (IOC-UNESCO) that began in January 2011.. Due to the vote of the UNESCO General Conference to admit Palestine as a Member State (31 October 2011), the US was required by federal law to withdraw all direct and voluntary contributions to UNESCO.. As a result, NSF funding for IOCCP staff support was cut off on 2 November 2011.. IOC-UNESCO was able to identify emergency funding from the Global Ocean Observing System to continue the staff positions through 31 March 2012.. Following extended negotiations between all the involved organizations, the IOCCP Project Office moved its headquarters at the IOC-UNESCO in Paris on 1 April 2012.. Initially the IOCCP Office was jointly hosted by the Institute of Oceanology of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IO PAN) in Sopot, Poland and the Joint Office for Science Support of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR/JOSS) in the United States.. Beginning 1 October 2012, IO PAN in Sopot, Poland became the permanent home of IOCCP Project Office.. The Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) and the IOC-UNESCO continue to co-sponsor IOCCP activities and NSF continues providing Project Office staff support.. Office Staff.. After three and a half years of service, on September 30 2012, Dr Kathy Tedesco stepped down as the Director of the IOCCP.. Having Kathy in charge of the IOCCP Project Office has been a privilege.. As a former research scientist, and with significant program management experience, Kathy had no difficulties to meet the goals of the IOCCP.. This has never been an easy task, particularly during the turbulent time in 2012 that included the relocation of the Project Office to Poland.. Kathy was successful in prioritizing a diverse workload, managing budgets, organizing workshops and working with scientists to produce necessary planning documents and reports.. She always had the right perspective to understand the obligations and demands of scientists who are asked to contribute to IOCCP activities often with no additional funding.. We would like to take this opportunity to once more thank Kathy for all the work she has done for IOCCP and to congratulate her for her new position outside the IOCCP.. At the same time Dr Maciej Telszewski has been appointed the new Project Director effective 1 October 2012.. Maciej is well known to most of you, as he has served as the IOCCP Deputy Director since January 2011, during which time he has been increasingly involved in coordinating the numerous IOCCP activities..
