Indian Ocean Science Workshop in September 2017
September 11-13, 2017, La Jolla, California
To harness growing interest among US scientists in Indian Ocean research, the US IIOE-2 Steering Committee held an Indian Ocean community workshop September 11-13, 2017 in La Jolla, CA. Through a combination of plenary sessions and smaller group discussions, participants in this workshop worked across disciplines of biological, chemical, physical, and geological oceanography, as well as climate dynamics and atmospheric science to generate integrated observing and process experiment strategies to address some of the leading, multidisciplinary science questions in the Indian Ocean basin. The workshop was sponsored by the US Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry (OCB) Program, NASA Physical Oceanography, NOAA Ocean Observing and Monitoring Division, the Indo-US Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF), and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO).
