Early Career Ocean Observatory Town Hall – Ocean Sciences 2020
2020 Ocean Sciences Meeting – Early Career Ocean Observatory Town Hall
The Ocean Observatories Initiative: a catalyst for early-career, interdisciplinary research
Tuesday, February 18 12:45-1:45 in San Diego Convention Center, 9, UL
This town hall is targeted towards building a community of practice centered around early career scientists using ocean observations. We invite anyone interested in becoming involved in developing collaborations, especially related to interdisciplinary topics.
The NSF-funded Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) is an excellent platform for ocean observing because of high temporal resolution with multiple data streams. This town hall will provide information on how participants can become involved. Possible topics based on attendee interest could include accessing and utilizing data, QA/QC of data, ideas for interdisciplinary research, building a community of practice, specific arrays, adding non-OOI assets to OOI, incorporating OOI data into proposals, and teaching with OOI data.
