Delivering Sustained, Coordinated, and Integrated Observations of the Southern Ocean for Global Impacted

A paper jointly contributed by SCAR–SCOR SOOS, and the CLIVARCliCSCAR Southern Ocean Regional Panel (SORP), as well as other authors from the broader Southern Ocean community, reviewed the major scientific and observational progress of the last decade and presented an assessment of key priorities for the coming decade with the goal of achieving the SOOS vision and delivering essential data to all end-users.


Report from the eighth meeting of the CLIVAR/CLiC/SCAR Southern Ocean panel
Attendees of the meeting included 9 members of the SOP and 13 other invited experts including representatives from modelling, palaeo, and early career scientsts community. Discussions focussed on; the status of SOOS and the under ice observations workshop; the statuse of the C-SOBOM programme; Antarctica 2K working group activities; and a joint session with the woring group on ocean model development (WGOMD).
