The 2018 Liege Colloquium titled ‘Long-term studies in oceanography – a celebration of 50 years of science’ will review the advances made in studying the oceans during the last several decades. In particular, this edition will be dedicated to long-term studies in oceanography. Our knowledge about the ocean has changed dramatically over these past 50 years, as is the availability and quality of data and tools to study the ocean. The ocean plays a crucial role in the regulation of the Earth’s climate. As climate change poses an unprecedented threat to the Earth environment, studies that focus on the long-term variation of the ocean and its response to climate change have therefore become essential to understand and monitor the Earth climate. From EuroGOOS, Vicente Fernandez, Colloquium Scientific Committee member, is planned to attend.
