Announcing Two New Ocean Observing Webinar Series

The AtlantOS Ocean Hour launched in February 2021 as a monthly webinar series to connect the Atlantic ocean observing community. This webinar series provides an opportunity for community engagement and development of the All-Atlantic Ocean Observing System (AtlantOS), as well as a space for the community to share ideas, progress in specific topics, use cases, projects, programs, and address issues in developing e.g. communities of practice. The Ocean Hour is an hour long webinar held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, followed by networking opportunities. February's Ocean Hour served as a revitalization of the importance of implementing the AtlantOS program and provided the observing community and all interested stakeholders with an update on recent activities and plans. The next Ocean Hour will be March 9, 2021 and focus on the Glider Network and Basin Scale Implementation. NOAA Global Ocean Monitoring and Observing (GOMO) Program Deputy Director Jessica Snowden is a member of the AtlantOS Steering Committee and GOMO International Ocean Science Program Specialist Ann Zinkann is a member of the AtlantOS Coordination Team.
