GEOTRACES Indian Ocean Planning Workshop
24 October 2007 - 26 October 2007
The Report of the Workshop is available to download.
The goal of the workshop is to refine the scientific objectives developed in the GEOTRACES science plan, and place those objectives into a framework of specific ocean sections and process studies. An important aspect of the workshop is to identify nations that are prepared to take the lead in carrying out specific cruises as elements of the broader basin-scale plan. Individuals who are prepared to organize research cruises and to secure funding to support those cruises are particularly encouraged to participate.
The workshop focusing on the Pacific basin was successfully held in June where as the workshop dealing with the Atlantic basin will be held in September this year. These workshops will produce a set of recommendations that will be used by the GEOTRACES Scientific Steering Committee to develop a coherent global plan for the GEOTRACES program.
