Special Issue of Frontiers in Marine Science: OceanObs19: An Ocean of Opportunity

The ocean observing community has been hard at work writing and reviewing community white papers aimed at addressing the key issues and future decadal goals of ocean observing. These peer-reviewed articles are being published in a special issue of Frontiers in Marine Science under the topic OceanObs19: An Ocean of Opportunity. Out of the 140 papers currently published or under review for this special issue, 63 of them have contributions from OOMD team members or affiliated PI authors, with 16 of them being lead authors.

The articles included in this special issue describe visions and aspirations for the coming decade related to new and improved synergies between end users and providers of ocean observations, opportunities for more integration at the global and regional level, and advancing the different societal benefits identified. These have focused the conferences 7 societal benefit themes (Discovery, Ecosystem health & Biodiversity, Climate Variability & Change, Water Food & Energy Security,  Pollution & Human Health, Hazards & Maritime Safety, and Blue Economy) and overarching themes of governance, interoperability, integration and information.
