Application Deadline: 14th July 2024
Global Ocean Observing System
The Global Ocean Observing System is a program of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO, working to coordinate an integrated and responsive ocean observing system. The Biology and Ecosystems Expert Panel (BioEco Panel) is one of three panels providing scientific advice and expertise to GOOS on sustained observations of ocean variables across physics, biogeochemistry and marine life. To support ocean observing coordination, GOOS has identified a series of physical, biogeochemical, biological and ecosystem measurements known as Essential Ocean Variables (EOVs). The EOVs have been identified by the ocean community as essential for establishing the state of the global ocean and how it is changing through time. They are designed to support the delivery of information and tools that support science-based decision-making. The Biology and Ecosystems expert panel coordinates 12 BioEco EOVs focused on monitoring key taxa and habitat groups and a cross-disciplinary EOV focused on ocean sound. To fulfil the Panel’s responsibilities and commitments, two expert members take on voluntary leadership roles within the Panel in relation to each BioEco EOV.
