Ocean Sciences Meeting (OSM) 2022
Information about the planning and contributions to OSM 2022 can be found on the conference website.
Some instructions & deadlines:
- The abstract submission deadline of 11:59 pm EDT on 29 September 2021.
- Abstract submitters should assign their abstract to sessions providing a first, second and third choice.
- Session information is available on the OSM 2022 website.
Registration is possible up to the event starting date but with fees increasing.
OSM 2022 is planning both in-person and virtual components, but is prepared to convene an entirely virtual conference if necessary. The decision of how to proceed will be made in early November 2021, and will remain flexible.
OceanPredict supported sessions
OceanPredict is encouraging support for some of the OSM 2022 science sessions:
Marine Ecosystem Analysis and Prediction Task Team (MEAP-TT) invites contributions to session:
- Session OB07: Research Opportunities from a Global Biogeochemical Argo Fleet
This session aims to highlight the extensive range of ocean research topics that BGC Argo connects to, including marine deoxygenation; ocean acidification; air-sea fluxes of oxygen and carbon dioxide; the biological pump; particle dynamics; and biogeochemical (oxygen, nitrogen, carbon) cycles. A key goal of the session is to emphasize how BGC float arrays can deliver novel science that, when scaled regionally or globally, could support fisheries management, ecosystem modeling, carbon budget verification, remote sensing applications, climate modeling, and operational forecasting. Contributions related to how BGC Argo connects with hydrography (e.g., GO-SHIP and GLODAPv2), ocean data products (e.g., SOCAT), remote sensing, models, and traditional approaches for measuring ocean biogeochemistry are also welcome.
- Session OS11: Observing and Predicting the Global Coastal Ocean
Responding to climate change, and effective management of coastal resources will require the development of a modern, agile, knowledge and information infrastructure that includes effective ocean observing systems, tailored models and information services, and fostering the use of standards and best practices. This session is aligned with the CoastPredict initiative now endorsed as a Programme under the UN Ocean Decade, in partnership with GOOS. CoastPredict focuses on understanding, observing and predicting common and diverse ocean features in the world’s global coastal ocean environments, to produce predictions of natural variability and human-induced change in coastal areas, and upgrading the infrastructure for exchange of data with standard protocols.We welcome contributions on a broad range of topics, such as: enhanced ocean observations at regional and local scale, extending the existing regional observing capabilities and linking to GOOS; dynamic downscaling of regional models, including physical processes not represented in the global simulations; advances in situ and satellite data assimilation schemes to constrain model solutions, improving reliability and regional reanalysis with better optimised initial conditions for operational forecasts; new instrumentation and measurement approaches.
