Why Earth Needs an International Global Ocean Observing System

The ocean impacts Earth’s climate and weather, provides critical food and energy resources, plays an enormous role in the global economy, and directly effects the well-being of coastal communities. Despite the critical role oceans play, only recent technical breakthroughs have allowed people to maintain a sustained presence in the sea and thoroughly understand its wide range of societal benefits. Dr. Oscar Schofield will review these new discoveries and provide examples of how they directly benefit society while creating new diplomatic challenges and opportunities. Schofield will also review plans and strategies for developing a global observing system ranging from deep ocean, melting polar regions, and coastal waters.
