Events

We are fortunate to have the facilities to host a number of events, from small project meetings to large-scale workshops and conferences within our own Lecture Theatre. Currently, we are running fewer events than normal due to covid-19 but we plan to bring our marine science seminars, training courses and other events online in 2021.

Upcoming events

17 May - 20 May 21

Joint ECMWF/OceanPredict workshop on Advances in Ocean Data Assimilation

Virtual

This workshop aims to bring together experts in the field of ocean and coupled data assimilation to discuss the latest progress in the field, to outline the main challenges and to identify new directions for research.

18 May - 21 May 21

Ocean Visions 2021 Summit "Towards a Global Ecosystem for Ocean Solutions"

Online

The Ocean Visions 2021 Summit May 18-21, 2021 “Towards a Global Ecosystem for Ocean Solutions” will bring together a multi-sector community of researchers, innovators, decision-makers, funders, and more to develop roadmaps for solving great ocean challenges including ocean-based solutions to climate, equitable coastal solutions strategies for resilience and adaptation, marine circular economies, ocean & human health, and how to transform research from academia into sustainable businesses. 

19 May 21

Gas Transfer at Water Surfaces 'Bitesize' Event

Online

Host

This half day 'Bitesize' event will be leading up to 2022's postponed 8th International Symposium on Gas Transfer at Water Surfaces, featuring taster talks and an opportunity to mingle online with other attendees.

25 May - 28 May 21

Second International Operational Satellite Oceanography Symposium

Online

Programme Committee members

Key attendee: Steve Groom, Dr Stefano Ciavatta

This second OSO Symposium will build on our first gathering in June 2019 of community members involved in all levels of the observation-to-information value chain, from data providers to users, of operational satellite oceanographic data, products and applications.

25 May - 01 Jun 21

A G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative Event - The Global Biogeochemical-Argo Fleet: Knowledge to Action Workshop

Online

Speaker

Key attendee: Dr Stefano Ciavatta

A virtual workshop building on the priorities of the G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative will be held to explore the applications of a global data-stream from the Biogeochemical-Argo array in fisheries, carbon budget verification, and environmental forecasting. The impetus for the workshop is the G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative for better ocean observations to ensure sustainable use by future generations. The G7 summit will this year take place in the UK, 11-13 June.

10 Jun 21

Science Museum: How are our oceans responding to climate change?

Online

Speaker

Key attendee: Dr Carol Turley

Oceans cover more than 70% of the Earth’s surface and as the planet heats up, they are feeling the impact acutely. But how exactly does climate change affect our oceans, how do our oceans influence climate change and what can we do about it?

12 Jul - 15 Jul 21

AMEMR 2021

Plymouth

Organisers

AMEMR (Advances in Marine Ecosystem Modelling Research) Conference provides an opportunity to present, discuss and learn about a wide variety of marine modelling challenges, methods, applications and outcomes.

17 May 22

The 8th International Symposium on Gas Transfer at Water Surfaces

Online

This event is a short ‘teaser’ to maintain an active community before the main 8th International Symposium on Gas Transfer at Water Surfaces (in person in Plymouth, UK in 2022).
