BGC-Argo & 3rd Deep-Argo Workshop

27/09/2021 - 01/10/2021

The BGC-Argo & 3rd Deep-Argo Workshop will take place online on 27 September-1 October 2021, as part of the EuroSea project.

The BGC Argo workshop has a three-fold purpose: review progress done in implementing best practices in the area of floats preparation, float deployment and data management; exchange with user community to identify their needs and develop synergies; and foster interaction with other components of the ocean observing system.

The Deep-Argo workshop aims to assess progress of the Deep-Argo mission, review end-users’ needs, and finalize the implementation plan of the global Deep Argo array of 1250 floats.

During a joint BGC-Deep Argo session, participants will discuss the implementation of oxygen sensors on Deep-Argo floats, scientific motivation, required accuracy and stability, and oxygen sensor readiness and cost, as well as the interactions between Argo and other networks and observing programs (DOOS, GO-SHIP, Oceansites, Gliders).
