The SOOS Symposium theme, “Southern Ocean in a Changing World”, recognizes the important role of the Southern Ocean in the Earth system. The Symposium is a forum for assessing our progress so far in providing observing systems, observations and regional programs that deliver timely and accessible information for the Southern Ocean. The Symposium is also an opportunity to address the challenges faced in providing long term observations that address policy and societal issues as well as advancing our scientific understanding of the Southern Ocean.
